    Also I don't see anything that explicitly equates Tea Partiers and Blue Dog Democrats. Just because one isn't an alternative doesn't mean it's an equivalent.

    I agree with anastasia p-I would say that if voters are presented with a "real" Republican (and, face it, the Tea Party IS the real face of Republicanism in much of the country) and a fake Democrat, they'll be inclined to choose the Republican.

    I get that that is not a popular opinion on this Website, which for a long time was devoted to electing "more and better Democrats" even at the expense of quality. However, reality shows that, for example, Machin and Tester disappoint a lot more than they surprise.

    Of course, I'd avoid the dichotomy entirely by voting for a third party. Unsurprisingly, this viewpoint is also unpopular on this Website, but that doesn't make it any less valid.
