      ...and now there's a good chance that there will be a GOP senator, for 6 years, who resides well within the Sharon Angle spectrum of crazy teabaggery.  

      Even one is one too many.

        Miller is so radical many Alaskans won't like him, and many moderate Republicans might not vote for their party's nominee even if they can't bring themselves to vote for a Democrat.

      •  If so, there's a silver lining. (1+ / 0-)

        All the Democrats who won in 2004 or later get a boost in seniority. And the bagger Senator will be utterly ineffective. He'll inspire other voters across America to abandon the Republicans, just like Bachmann and Palin and Beck. Murkowski had the appearance of moderate cred.

        The more the collective IQ of the GOP Senate caucus goes down, ultimately the fewer of them there will be.

        Alternatively, this could be McAdams's liferaft. You can bet everyone in Alaska will at least take a new look at him.

        The Right Wing wants to take America back. The left wing wants to take America forward. Any questions?
