Should democratic congress-persons advocate for fellow republican incumbent congresspersons at the expense of democratic challengers?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

      understand how that dammned butterfly ballot came to be and just how so many Jewish folks voted for Buchannan.

      And what does that poll have to do with any of this?

        Stop it with the 'stupid Floridian' jokes. They are in very bad taste. While I agree that the poll makes no sense compared to the diary, there is no need to use this to make fun of all people from Florida. Address the person, not all the people in the state...Geesh.

        •  This poll demonstrates a WINNABLE race (0+ / 0-)
          31% negs vs 38% pos for GBW w/ 50% pos for GWB 21% undecided w/ only 30% name recognition describes an electorate looking for an alternative...  Thought interested folks might like to know...  J R

          get off your high horse.  I actually LIVE in Daytona Beach, so I am one of those Floridians you claim I am making fun of.  I did not make a "stupid Floridian" joke.  I spoke the truth about a poorly designed ballot and a well documented irregularity in the election results in a Jewish community.
          I can comment at will because I live here.  Thanks for agreeing that the poll makes no sense compared to the diary.

    Recommended by:

    ...18 House reps who voted for the passage of the Adam Walsh Act under Hastert's suspension of the rules...
    thousands of voters impacted by this legislation faxed Hastert's office to ask the AWA come before the full house, but he ignored these Americans.

    Not only is Brown linked to Foley, she is linked to Abramoff and DeLay.

    It's time for her to go!

    Run John Run!
