    I don't like the way our legislative power is proportioned....but that's the reality.
    Uhhhhh.... just one point here.

    There is the House, and there is the Senate..... together they make up our CONGRESS.

    Just sayin'.

    58% is pretty high. That's almost 6 out of 10 voters saying "Hey keep feeding us that pork baby!"

    Or they do not keep up on politics. You think the people that voted for Obama imagined the stuff he is doing?

    Re: Veteran congressman's death adds to Barack Obama's woes

    he was the second most corrupt man in dc, after rangel

    as chair of defense appropriations he kept steering hundreds of millions to contractors represented by pma, a lobbyist he was closely associated with and which steered big sums back into his campaigns

    he was also earl of earmarks, most famously the eponymous airport in johnstown which gets so much money but sees so little traffic

    he also once quite stupidly insulted his constituents as a lot of racists

    now his district, pa12, is the only in the nation that went for mccain in 08 and jfkerry in 04

    very interesting

    i read that as meaning it's a very close district

    mccain won it with 49%, jfk with 51

    again, a close district

    it's lower income but kinda clingy to bibles and guns

    that a big, old and heavy hitter like murtha would take it by 58...

    i wouldn't be too surprised, i would expect as much, i would expect goodness knows what arms twisted and boxes pried...

    if you know what i mean

    like i said, murtha was monstrously mendacious

    anyway, a 58 point win in november of 08 is certainly no 58 today

    as we've seen in virginia, new jersey and massachusetts

    those referenda witnessed TWENTY FIVE to THIRTY point swings SO (since obama)

    dems are super scared about pa12

    they should be

    So, with Taxachusett[e]s and Virginia and New Jersey swinging up to 30 points, you want to keep on saying 58% ain't close, when that candidate was a lifetime incumbent?

    Let's see....58% - 30% = 28%.

    I'd say this election might say something interesting.

    If another corrupt Democrat is elected, it says the voters aren't paying attention.

    If a Republican is elected, it says the voters are still tired of Democrats in Washington.

    You're assuming the Dem that runs in Murtha's district is gonna lose 30% of the vote. His district has nothing to do with Virginia or Massachusetts.

    And here's the only point I made earlier - what difference does it make if a Dem or Republican wins the seat? That district is a giant pile of pork. Whoever wins the seat better keep the pork coming or they'll be out of a job soon.
