  •  Uh, (4.00)
    So say Herseth wins, the House stays GOP and she votes for the thing when it comes up.  Other conservative Dems will feel pressure to do the same and Bush 44 can say it has bipartisan support.  I don't like that story either.

    •  So you would prefer (none)
      a Republican who votes for it?  These aren't wonderful choices, but they're the ones you have.  

      Either way, if you really feel you must attack a supporter of the FMA, go after one of the folks on the list.  They're Republicans, they're cosponsors of the FMA, and they're vulnerable to Democratic challengers.  They suck in myriad ways that Herseth does not.

      •  Yeah. (4.00)
        The Republicans support the thing as a function of their base.  Democrats supporting it give it the color of bipartisanship.  And why would I waste my frickin' time attacking the R's on this issue.  Like they'll listen to a Texas liberal whose never voted for one of them.  However, it's absolutely my business to criticize members of my own party when they start spilling this crap.  Herseth's support of this thing is a betrayal, when the Repubs do it it's bidness as usual.  What's worse?
