  •  Yeah, no small number of them are leaving (15+ / 0-)

    Myrick is retiring, Schmidt and Adams lost in primaries and Biggert, Bono Mack, Buerkle and Hayworth all got thrown out on their asses.

    And in the Senate, Snowe and Hutchison, two highly respected members of the body, retire and there's only the teabagging idiot Fischer coming in. (Compare that to the likes of Warren, Baldwin, Heitikamp and Hirono coming in on the Democratic side.)

    And of those GOP women in the House, the only one of them with any real national notoriety is Bachmann and not for any good reasons. Of course, many of the others are crackpots like her (Blackburn, Ellmers, Foxx, Hartzler, Herrera Beutler, Jenkins, Noem and the incoming Walorski), so they probably would like to keep them under wraps.
