    I didn't mean for that to sound rude if it did I apologize. Typing with a broken hand is painful and makes me cranky.

    He will be an interesting person to watch that is for sure. He ran as a Republican, but in reality I would say he is more of a centrist this far. He is certainly a breath of fresh air here in MA.

    You're forgiven. Going without sex will make anyone cranky.

    Well, with a broken hand, I'm sure you will be more than ready for her return.

    The extremos on the far right, who seem to get all the press these days, are NOT very well liked no matter what they tell themselves. The GOP need's to cut 'em loose. The trick is to not lose the votes of the whackos they DO alienate. It will be a very tricky balancing act. For without the whacko vote, they won't stand a chance either.
    That is precisely why the GOP is in so much trouble. They embraced the whackos during health care only to hang the earlier referenced albatross around their neck. They know they can't offend these people lest they split tickets with them and end up in a replay of Perot '92.

    A very sticky wicket, eh?

I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too.

    I see Gina wore her thinking cap to class today.

    Exactly right.

    (I think. I really don't know what a sticky wicket is, but I'm still sure you're right. )

    It's a difficult situation.

    Indeed! *thumbs up*

    The similarities between 92 and 10 are many. Perot really screwed the pooch for the GOP back in the day.

    I have long thought, and have documented the thought here at DP, that the Tea Party movement was something set-up by GOP interests to seperate themselves, as a party, from the embarassment of people out there on the outer perimeter, just long enough to get back in the good graces of mainstream America. But, in the end-game, the TP'ers will "suddenly" dissolve and throw their weight behind the GOP.

    Otherwise, why would GOP heavy hitter's be seen at the TP knowing that, the Tea Party, as an independant, "grass roots" party, would only split the GOP vote?

    It's as obvious as the nose on one's face if you ask me.
