    That's very optimistic of you. Call me cynical, but they've done some stupid stuff that's hurt them before, and then they turn around and pat themselves on the back for it. Point is, I'm worried Ted Cruz, or someone like him will replace Beohner.

    The shut down WILL hurt Republicans but I doubt a moderate will replace him. The "sane" Republicans have a gun to their heads in the form of "primary threats" There is big money behind the T's and they will use it to threaten to oust any opposition as RINOS. There has already been quite a purge so the threat is quite credible. It really is just more collateral damage from the soft money ruling by the Supreme court that certain billionaires are using to hold the entire country hostage. In effect thay have purchased the entire GOP for a few 100 million $. It is truly a sad day for our Democracy.

    I hope you're right.

    There are signs that moderate republicans might organize themselves and fight back. I think they're getting tired of being called "RINO's" and purged from their own party. They might not have a choice not to organize if they want remain relevant. Here's whats in going in my state which as you know is probably the reddest state in the union.....

    It's gaining traction and as more republicans become disenfranchised....well, we'll see.

    How are you MMC?
    Really? I would like that a lot. Eric Cantor is pretty moderate on most issues.
