  •  Blanche Lincoln is finding out (0+ / 0-)

    what happens when you behave like a GOoPer and call yourself a Democrat.

    Write off the state.  It ain't comin' back.  That goes for MS. AL. GA. LA. et al.

    We can win with them firmly holding on to the rump of the USA.

    •  That's insulting to people on this site (2+ / 0-)

      who live in those states. They probably don't appreciate that you think that the Democrat should "write off" their states.

      •  Hey. I live in Kansas. (2+ / 0-)

        Don't preach to me about what's offensive.

        We have a state legislature that is controlled by the weirdest of the weird GOoPers and our progressive governor, who now works for the administration, had trouble getting a goddamn budget passsed, let alone anything meaningful accomplished.

        In almost two terms!

        And now we here in Kansas are soon to be bestowed the great honor of having Governor Brownback.  

        So, when I say that I am surrounded by idiots, I think you'll agree.

        Therefore, I never get "offended" when someone tells the truth about my fellow residents. As they frequently do on this site and many others.

        So, uh, hold your fire, there sparky.

    •  She's doing fine with liberals (1+ / 0-)

      +66/-18 there....approve/disapprove. And just ok with moderates +51/-31. But she's getting killed with conservatives.

      Her opponents have negligible name recognition though, which should allow her to win rather easily anyway. But if one of these no-namers catches on somehow there could be an upset.

      Here we are now Entertain us I feel stupid and contagious

    •  That's not fair. And kinda offensive. (0+ / 0-)

      Those of us living in hostile territory are trying our best to keep from being swept by the red tide. The ARGOP is even crazier than the TNGOP.

      I don't care where you're from. Don't write us off. We need support.

      As to Blanche, her numbers are always shit. But she's far better than any Republican running for her seat. She may not be with us all the time, but better a 60% Democrat than a 0% Republican.
