      all the polls showed him in the low 40s

      this says something about the tpotty's ability to GOTV though

      Politics is like driving. To go backward put it in R. To go forward put it in D.

        had a last minute surge of cross over Democrats come in voting for Brat. Someone wrote a post on this early this morning which I rec'd.

        last month and a lot of people were commenting on Cantor and they hated him with a white hot hate. It wasn't just put downs; it was loathing. And there was a determination to work to oust him. When I looked up his opponent I said  uh oh.

        He is very good looking and was doing a low key meet and greet as many as he could while ol Eric was running around the country.

        I just wish I had bet on it.

        This is NOY good news. It will fire up the teapots all around the country.

        As for Cantor, live by the tea party; die by the tea party. couldn't happen to a nicer guy.

        But make no mistake, this is bad news for Democrats.
