  •  It's gonna be interesting (4+ / 0-)

    to see how the repugs line up with a "put up or shut up" vote on something they CLEARLY do not want to pass and yet are afraid to vote against.

    Also, the tea party idiots are gonna have a massive coronary over this! (Which is a great upside)

    Seriously, this could push the tea party idiots to primary the less insane repugs out, causing them to run people like Akin who (lets face it) is a WIN for the Democratic party.  The more crazy the tea party candidate is, the easier it is for a Democrat to pick up that seat!

    Never underestimate stupid. Stupid is how reTHUGlicans win!

    •  I'm always nervous about this "crazier the better" (4+ / 0-)

      theoretically-easier-to-beat-'em  strategy.  I know it is widely accepted as a logical political approach.  

      But when we fail to beat 'em, then they're in there.  In droves.  And they are f'n CRAZY!
