  •  In your poll, I went with choice #3. (1+ / 0-)

    vote for Campfield to give the Dem a better shot.  I did this because this is how we're rolling in this year's election:  when we want the teabagger to win, he wins (Cantor's opponent in VA), when we want the teabagger to lose, he loses (Cochran's opponent in MS).  We're not just crossing over out of spite or frustration, we're actually having an impact in these repub primaries.  Two years from now?  Maybe it won't be the same situation at all.  But this year, it's working.
    I've lived in the same all-red district in Texas for the last 20 years now, and I've voted in repub primaries about a half-dozen times.  One year I voted in the repub primary runoff in order to keep Dickless Army's son, Dickless, Jr, from inheriting his congressional seat.  And it worked!  And the guy who won was actually a fairly moderate repub.
    I'd say that whichever primary you vote in, you're doing the right thing.  But don't be afraid to vote repub.  You'd be in very good company (well, not really, but still).
