  •  I was day dreaming yesterday (8+ / 0-)

    about what to do about the situation we find ourselves in. Fears about losing the house and senate and having a terrible 2010. (I'm with Gov Dean that we'll do better than most pundits think.)

    In NY CD#1 in 2008 the Repubs had to scrape the barrel to find a Rep challenger to our mod/lib Dem Congressman, this year every Republican and their brother are coming out of the woodwork to challenge. 10 challengers.

    This is a nightmare. So my daydream was to take out a full page ad in the local paper just excoriating the Republicans, ala the Ted Turner tact you describe.

    •  LI Mike - I think this is less of a problem (6+ / 0-)

      than you think.

      Out of the 10 challengers I think 8 of them are likely teabaggers who see their "chance".

      In my opinion (dreams?), the teabaggers will rip each other apart and the republican candidate in a lot of races is going to be not very attractive.

      Consider Kentucky: Ron Paul's son (the one named after Ayn Rand) is the likely candidate in the Senate race. Once his libertarian roots are exposed, I think that even Kentuckians will cringe. Do you really want a candidate whose focus is on closing the federal reserve? Like that resonates with anyone at all?

      HCR will pass, some re-regulation will pass and Democrats will have something to run on in the fall.

      Much of life is knowing what to Google
