    educated voters?

    If you can't support the veterans you have, don't make any new ones.

      well sure they are afraid of educated voters, but more to the point I think Kos is gonna get a Hackett moment soon. See the were, and are afraid of Kos much the same way they are of Hackett.  

      Both are smart and well liked with a ground swell of support BUT neither are under the direct control of the old party elites. "We simply can't have these young upstarts in the mix" I am sure they are thinking.
       Poltics is like the old mafia, you have to earn your ranks, have to faithfully follow the bosses etc.  Nothing scares the establishment like smart people they can't control, so they simply use the system to squash em.   My only hope for blogs is that the internet is international. Much the same way internet gambling may be illegal in the US, it still doesn't stop it from being a billion dollar internet industry.

      Kos may have to head to a tropical paradise and sit with his servers on some beautiful beach somewhere  :)
