    The more the Business Republican seats fall over to Bircher Republicans, the easier it is for Democrats to manipulate the weakened Business clast.

    Every time a Bircher wins a primary, look at it as a small step forward for Obama's general strategy. Weakening the Business Republicans -- what you call "the GOP" -- is key to getting legislation through the House and to a lesser extent through the Senate.

    When a Bircher takes a House seat, that means there will be one more ill informed, destructive, politically vulnerable incumbent in the next election cycle.

    Wanna run against a Bircher or a Business ???

    Birchers absorb enormous piles of donation money to get reelected. Reportedly Bachmann spent 20:1 to eek out a tight win in 2012. It gets worse for her going forward.

      If they survive the primary, the seat is ripe for Dem pickup, as these survivors will be more likely from districts that are more vulnerable to Dem challengers.
