    The districts the Republicans are going to have the best shot at are the swing districts... which are more likely to have elected moderate Democrats.

    Has there ever been an election where the districts with the HIGHER Dem+ PVI were more in play?  

    "Sun hot," declares Waxman.

    "Waxman blows the lid of Sun controversy," reports Kos.

    •  So does this mean the "Staple's" trope is now... (0+ / 0-)

      ...outre as a metaphor for obviousness, with a slight but sharp hint of mocking?

        I don't know what a stapletoreps is.

        •  Staples? You know that commercial "Wow! That's (0+ / 0-)

          a real fucking annoying commercial you've got there."

          "Wow!  I can't belive you're playing that same fucking annoying commercial AGAIN!"

          "WOW!  Same fucking commercial, same lousy office supplies!!!"

          "I KNOOOOW!"

          So, when there's really painfully obvious stuff that a whole bunch'a Kossacks gloam onto, instead of "Meh!" or something more snark-with-shards-of-glass, I just call for a "Staples" commercial: to wit,

          "Wow!  Rush Limbaugh just said another outrageously racist, ignorant, asshattic thing!"

          "I KNOOOW!"

          But it may have gotten old - things around here have a funny sort of shelf-life.

          As for trope, that you can look up easily enough.  If this were a Regency romance, it would be a conceit; a Monk-inspired jazz piece, the riff; Flannery O'Connor, the metaphor.
