    I would like you to be honest and when you make a claim take in all the data. Your hypothesis is not supported by the rest of the data and you continually dismiss and deflect away from other elections in which Democrats have taken long standing Republican seats.

    Cult followers are so illogical.

    The current borders of the 26th have nothing to do with what they may have been during the Civil War.

    The current borders were drawn up so that a specific Republican, Tom Reyonlds, so that he could carpetbag into it without having to move too far away from the district he represented in the NYS Assembly. They lopped off just enough of Buffalo's northern suburbs, and stretched it through the suburbs of Rochester and Syracuse. That way, Reynolds could move from Springville, in southern Erie County, to Amherst, in northern Erie County, and get elected to Congress.

    Grew up a Democrat, spent over 20 years voting for Democrats, hardly a cult follower. Results matter, not rhetoric.

    Ah.....all 435 or so seats are on the ballot in 2012. You do know that Congress people are elected to two year seats, right?

    The Republican candidate had already dropped out. It was a race between the Tea party backed candidate and the democrat. Not a three-way

    You could at least be consistent. If it was about Obama, then it was about Obama. But don't say it was about Obama, but then say Obama wasn't on the ballot. I understand that you're giddy with excitement and can barely keep yourself from getting a boner because a Republican won, but geez...

    How was it about Obama this time, but not 10 months ago?

    So? So some people voted for the Independent. That doesn't exonerate the Republican party which still lost the seat following a scandal.
