    and make fun of Representative Moore-Capito all we want,
    but she is going  to be Senator Moore-Capito unless her Democratic opponent, Natalie Tennant does something to drastically differentiate herself from Capito's current position on the ACA:

    Stating that she's "disappointed"...that the law has made it harder for West Virginians to get affordable health care is not going to get her anywhere, certainly not a U.S. Senate seat...West Virginians already have a real Republican to vote for, one that is more well known.
    Tennant must start to be a Democrat, or we can kiss Rockefeller's seat goodbye.

      ...who it was who said, "Give voters a choice between a real Republican and an imitation, and they'll vote for the real one every time."

      Or words to that effect.

        Seems to be Harry Truman:

        “Given the choice between a Republican and someone who acts like a Republican, people will vote for the real Republican all the time.”

        In finding that one, I also came upon this one:

        “Carry the battle to them. Don't let them bring it to you. Put them on the defensive and don't ever apologize for anything.”

        Too bad the wrong party was the one listening.
