    Our conservative side, congressional district 2 where the only R congress-critter is the truly awful Greg Walden has been in office forever...actually only since 1999. He was preceded by the mind-bendinly terrible Wes Cooley, a Tea-bagger before there were tea-baggers.

    South of Eugene and east of the Cascades, our state is quite conservative. Luckily only a few people, a stray sheep or two and the coyotes live there. So, when statewide offices are contested and statewide ballot measures are put on the ballot, Oregon looks a lovely shade of blue. The truth is that 75% of the state by area is red territory.

    BUT! In this election, my southern county and the more conservative one to the north turned down GMO's, dumped and awful sheriff, extended the libraries' funding and did some other pretty reasonable stuff. Happily.

    So, I think the Monica Wehby (sp?) and her ilk of ultra-con Repugs is going to be phased out, at least in the southwest. The eastern part of the state may eventually go purple, I'm hoping!

    What stronger breast-plate than a heart untainted! Thrice is he arm'd, that hath his quarrel just; And he but naked, though lock'd up in steel, Whose conscience with injustice is corrupted. Henry VI Part II Act 3 Scene 2
