    I sure that your view would be that way. No offense meant. I would assume a Reid supporter would say both were bad, but Reid was just a little better. And a completely nutrel obsever might stick forks in his ears. Who knows.

    But I do know we all see things though the prism of our own world view and are seldom see with completely clear eyes.

    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.

    We know Reid is a nutjob because he's proven it over time. Not so for Angle. Anyway... assuming she is also a nutter, what do you do?

    You take the lesser of 2 nutters which is of course Angle. Thats the best win we can get from Nevada.

    Which brings me back to my original question, why should anyone in Nevada or in the country be happy about this?

    If both are nutters you vote the one in that will have the least power to hurt you. That would be the freshman not the majority leader.

    Maybe, but wouldn't hold your nose and be rather unhappy about it?

    No doubt Jmac has [by far] made the best arguments... However, he has a problem in that he seems to be talking to a [boo] wall. The words and replies bounce back from this wall as if they were pre-programmed into a computer with a major virus. I think I figued it out... Boo is actually a lefist programmed response to reason/logic.

    Re: Reid on the Ropes in Nevada

    First off, I am a lifelong republican moderate. Except for ONE presidential election, I have always voted GOP at the federal level. It was fairly easy to vote GOP because typically the DEMS chose idiots for their candidates. The worm has turned.
    The GOP has its foot in its mouth most of the time. All the DEMS should need to do in their campaign ads is rexpose the stupidity coming from the GOP side of the fence. However, it seems the average IQ of the GOP has dropped enough (thank you GWB) that the GOP will be excused its stupidity. Conservatives will continue wanting taxes cut even if it means adding more to the national debt.

    In Utah, we have a choice between a corrupt republican governor, or a flakey democrat. I am betting on the crook to win.
    The Nevada race is between a DEM who has lost touch with reality, and someone else who was never in touch with reality.
    In Delaware, the GOP has a really bad joke running, thanks to the Tea Party bowel movement.
    And in AZ, a Quayle offspring is running for the GOP. The stupid gene is strong in that family.
    As long as the GOP offers up so many poorly qualifed candidates, the DEMS opposing them will look good in comparison.
    Oracle of Utah
    Truth rings hollow in empty heads.

    If the freshman were a liberal nutter, would you be so gracious?

    Probably not. If that were the case the conservative would be the clear choice just as it is here.
