    They've also been calling the 2014 midterms over.  SUPPOSEDLY, you would think, reading many of the diaries here, the government shutdown was so toxic for Republicans that they will never recover and so it's the end of them.  So, of course, Virginia was a "shoo-in" and so is the 2014 midterms.

    It doesn't seem to ever occur to people that a adept moves can overcome even the worst political disasters.  Look at 2008: Bush burned down the world economy.  Guess who won the 2010 midterms.  Uh huh.  

    There are no long term penalty for being assholes in politics.  It's comforting but foolish to hope for that.  The government shutdown was a disaster, but it was an OCTOBER disaster, not a FIRST WEEK OF NOVEMBER disaster.  That's about how enduring the penalty is that they paid for the shutdown.

      Believers in Limbaugh-Hannity BS.  

      My wife, daughter and granddaughters should have more privacy in their doctor's office than I have buying another rifle or shotgun.
