  •  We cheered when Paul won (0+ / 0-)

    and laughed at the nutbag/teabaggers.  But some of them will get elected.

    Can yo imagine important senate committees chaired by Paul or Angle?

    •  A couple of nutbags aren't a threat (0+ / 0-)

      if the majority are soundly defeated and take the GOP down with them. Let me know if you need the smelling salts.

      And if its an economic committee I cannot wait.  Its time we shake up the normal narrative in Washington and I'll laugh my ass off watching the entrenched of both parties steam up in the collar when they get borrow-spend or tax-spend policies thrown back in their face.

      Face it a short term loss might be a long term win if we can destroy the calcification of ideas in Washington.  Do we really care who wields the sledgehammer?

      •  Yes, we do. (1+ / 0-)

        For starters, it won't be an economic committee -- it will be health & human services or the epa and the damage they will do will last forever.

        Next, the idea that an idiot, of any party or persuasion, would be in control of the gov't is a bad thing (see U.S. President,  Jan. 2001- Jan. 2009).

        Add to that the fact that most of them are outright sociopaths, your sledgehammer can ruin the lives and future of the majority of Americans.
