    is that people love to complain about incumbents...unless it's their own. It's pretty much a given in politics that if you don't end up in bed with a live boy or a dead girl (or the inverse for female legislators) or get caught with the hand in the cookie jar, you're going to get re-elected. Unless it's a watershed election like 2006 or 2008, the only time you get major turnover is if it's an open seat -- and I think there are just as many Republican open seats as there are Democrat.

    I'm trying to figure out if this is a "Why bother, we're DOOOOOOMED" diary, or one to try and gin up interest in GOTV.
