    Hopefully he'll be gone and you can get a real congressman again.  Granted, he's going to be a Blue Dog, but he'll be a thousand times better than DesJarlais.

    •  I know being in the minority sucks. (0+ / 0-)

      But a majority knew precisely what they were getting and that's what, or should I say who, or maybe it's what, they voted for. At some point you have to accept that in your congressional district people will vote for any old piece of shit with an R on it, because they see that as their only guarantee of White hegemony.

      •  Actually, we had a Democratic Representative (0+ / 0-)

        until 2010. He was a Blue Dog but he did vote for Nancy Pelosi for Speaker.

        This was a relatively poor district though with redistricting, we now have Rutherford County which is somewhat more affluent. I'm not sure how that has affected the vote here or whether it did at all since I think Desjarlais won all the counties.
