    I remembered another state GOP did something like this recently, I just couldn't remember which one. Maine, huh? They have more indy voters than any state percentage-wise, don't they? And look at their GOP, batshit crazy right turn off a cliff, same as everywhere else. To me it is the same formula, Big Money donors win primaries by running know-nothings and corporate shills in state elections driving the whole party far right with a list of crazy demands that scares the hell out of the public. They can't be this crazy and this open about it forever without paying a deep price for it, at some point or another the public will reject this lunacy. Or so one would hope

      That, in its essence, is fascism--ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power. -- Franklin D. Roosevelt --
