  •  Hoffman winning would give the MSM (8+ / 0-)

    its "dems on the decline meme", but in a larger context, it spells trouble for the gop.

    Yes, I know, many here will ask why winning is bad. A Hoffman, far right wingnut win positions the gop (possibly) with the teabaggers. While the media will do its level best to legitimize the baggers, the moderates, and there are  a bunch of them, will retract form the gop in horror.

    I still want the Dem to win, so we best get busy.

    I love music, so I don't steal it. I buy it.

      As much as Obama's approvals may have declined (although not anymore), even the WSJ says the GOP is, if anything, in a worse position than they worse in January and certainly has not gained.

    •  How can it be Dems in decline in a GOP district (2+ / 0-)

      The MSM mem will be all about what's happening in the GOP.

      This election has NOTHING to do with Democrats since a Democrat has NOT one an election in this district since the Civil War.
