    Won't argue with that, but that doesn't make a nut any better for the country. We the people seem to have failed in Nevada to field a viable candidate.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    That Minimum Standards Rule (idea) has been sorely tested several times - for example - Alphonse D'amato (R-NY) William Scott(R-Va) Larry Craig (R-Id) James East (R-NC) Ted Kennedy (c.1962) and I've heard Akaka from Hawaii at present isn't exactly a Mensa candidate.

    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Well, now there's an argument. If one side has a nutter, then we have to have our own nutter. Airborne!!!!

    Well, that'll certainly be good for the country.

    Doesn't matter. That person will still be representing and acting. We can't win as a country by this choice.

    Angle is an Easy Target for some because the Tea Party syndrome prevailed in Nevada as well as at least 3 other Races for the Senate. Two weeks left and it's a Coin flip as to who Wins in Nevada, but just like the Kentucky race with a GOP edge but a dubious Rand Paul running - the Left and their Allies in the 4th Estate have focused totally because these 2 races are still salvageable and so is a Democrat Senate Majority.

    So want a nut as majority leader and that is better than a freshman senator that has no power and could more easily be defeated the next election. You logic makes no sense to me.
