    Both sides need to fix it, and both sides share the blame for not fixing it.
    Politico's are dependent upon contributions from industry, that's what needs to be changed.

    The bill was written by a Democrat and all of it's sponsors (198) appear to be Democrats.

    This wasn't a Democrat win, it was a Republican loss because they couldn't figure out how to neutralize Jack Davis.

    The man has run multiple times, for both parties now, and for whatever reason someone in the Republican party hasn't gotten smart enough to buy him off.

    Now they're paying for it.

    That's why Corwin lost.

    There is no other reason.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    I hope the republicans keep believing the reason they lost a seat that they have held since the civil war was because of someone that got about 8% of the vote. Keep up with the denial.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    It still would be if a fake tea party candidate hadn't sucked off votes.

    Somebody needs to take a remedial math course:

    She carried 47% of the vote, to 43% for Republican Jane Corwin and 9% for a third-party candidate.

    No. It still would be if the Republicans had dealt with Davis. They didn't. Now they're paying for their hubris.

    Other than hanging around to correct math skills, do you have anything to add to the conversation?

    As someone who lives where this particular news story was made, yeah, I did.

    I already added it.

    You were too busy feeling right to notice it.

    Your loss.
