  •  If crazy is not electable, explain Steve King, (0+ / 0-)

    Michelle Bachmann, and Ron Paul.  Crazy as loons but all reliably re-elected.

    •  Organized crazy. (0+ / 0-)

      Organization makes the difference.  Those areas just have good local organization, plus as far as I know, they're all in fairly safe republican districts.

      The answer is for local groups against crazy to organize against them.  If placed on equal footing (equal organizational advantages, money, etc), crazy loses.

      Independents prefer moderation, for the most part.  I mean, we just won a national election on this premise.
