    and I cannot say that enough considering that Laesch is one of us, but the LAST district I would have dumped money into would be IL-14. A netroots going up against the speaker? Yeah, 50 state strategy, but even with that, you've got to put some district at the bottom of the odds list and that would have to be a pretty good choice, no matter how good a candidate Laesch is.

      he's within striking distance.  It's all about GOTV.  All it takes at this point is one misstep and/or a very aggressive GOTV program.

      Ford used his MSNBC appearance to mention the names of other Dem TN candidates.  

      Hastert is a corrupt piece of shit, who has positively trashed house rules, pissed on democracy in every way he could, treated Democrats like traitors, and when he's vulnerable, they don't pounce?  Even by just merely appearing to give Hastert's opponent a lift on the local news?

      I don't buy it.  

      Who knew? Chamonix. But did he tell us? NO!

      I would have dumped some money into.  Think of all the free press it would have generated nationally about the Democratic tsunami that's building.  

      If the DCCC hadn't wasted money and resources on the primary they could have easily given Laesch 50 or 100K to start off his campaign strongly to help build momentum and also generate the free press.

      If they did so now, it would also help bring the Foley issue back into the limelight for the last part of the election.

      LA is for Lower Alabama. Also known as the Florida Panhandle for any Yankees not in the know.
