    I don't live in Delta County anymore but my brother does (aside: I've been blessed with Senselessbrenner who will likely be in until he drops dead and I swear that Waukesha County will vote for his corpse if it still had an R after it's name) and I think that people have to understand that Casperson would probably join "The Family" and not be shy about anti-choice rhetoric or gay bashing or whatever.  That's his makeup.  I really wish people like my brother and others would call Stupak and say "Hey asshole!  I work at a bowling alley because that's the best job I could find with our craptacular unemployment rates here and I don't have health insurance. What the hell are you doing?" because I think that would be more effective than a primary challenge where the odds are slim.  And I can't support any challenge that comes in the way of the Repuke winning to punish Stupak because no one wins.

      on this part:

      And I can't support any challenge that comes in the way of the Repuke winning to punish Stupak because no one wins.

      I could argue that Stupak has much more influence over HCR legislation than any Repub would.  He is getting his smug mug on teevee every day because he's a Democrat.  He is blocking the Dems' signature campaign promise because of his personal religious beliefs, which he would have less ability to accomplish if he were in the minority party.  You don't see Joseph Cao being interviewed every day about what he thinks.

      Nope.  Not OK what Stupak is doing.  If a message is sent and there is less of this sort of thing in future, then it is my view that we (Democrats) win.
