    Barton loses the primary, and the wingnut Christian/tea party base (and its rabble-rousing media), is dispirited, and does not turn out in November.

    Barton wins the primary, and loses to a Democrat, which could happen given a strong candidate who sees and seizes the opportunity.

    Barton wins the primary and the general, and becomes more of a national laughing-stock than his fellow Texas Senator, helping propel a Democratic wave in 2016.

    A public option for health insurance is a national priority.

      A Dem pickup would be great, and Barton makes that a little more likely. But even if Barton wins the general, the GOP hasn't gained anything. They'd just be swapping one clown for a bigger clown.
