    blue dog, Jim Matheson, I concur with you SD. It was a tough call for me though, as i disagree with him on so many issues. Until I learned something important about Matheson. He gives piles and piles and piles of money to the downticket folks. and sometimes he votes the right way. And he's in utah. so what's a  congresscritter to do? His district was gerrymandered beyond recognition and still he wins, here in a very red state. i think he's the best we can hope for here right now. so we'll take it. and i'll help him again in 2010.

      (which should mean one based mostly in SLC) he will either need to move left or be primaried.  Until then, I appreciate his presence in Congress.

      So, Markos: we're supposed to hope Murphy wins in NY-20, but not donate to or work for him? Yup?

          some of the blue doggish seats are the cheapest to win in places like utah. we could have been contenders for the old cannon seat (now Chaffitz, bleh) had the DCCC sent some $$ our way. and it would have been far cheaper than a tight race elsewhere.
