  •  2014 is a long way off and we will not lose much (3+ / 0-)

    The GOP still hasn't learned much from last November's loss.  They truly think that if they keep the same views, but are just quieter about it, then all will be fine.  They are so arrogant and out of touch with reality.

    In Louisiana, given that Vitter is the other US Senator, they wouldn't want to throw Landrieu away, she is their only voice of sanity.

    Alaska and Iowa look good too.  South Dakota is going to be a challenge, but, just get a clone of Heidi Heitkamp in there.

    I do think we should find a way to primary Lindseed Graham.  While anyone that replaces him will also be a right winger, Graham is just so obnoxious.  I remember just a few years ago, he was flying back from Asia, with Hillary Clinton, and they were seen as having a great time hanging out together, because he is such a suck up, yet now, he would trash her anyway he had to if he could benefit from it.

    Now, of course he is against anyone that President Obama nominates, just to suck up to his base, but, at some point, they will tire of him too.  He is such an embarrassment.  Tim Scott and Graham will probably vote the same just about all of the time, but, temperamentally, Graham is far down the food chain.

    •  LA cares about sanity??? (0+ / 0-)

      Remember this is the place that elected Bobby Jindal twice -- and Edwin Edwards four times!

      •  well lets not forget that the 4th time was against (2+ / 0-)

        a KKK clansman. Vote for the crook not the wizard!

        In fact, the occasional victory for the GOP cannot hide the fact that this country is fast heading into another era, not of two-party democracy, but a party-and-a-half system. And the GOP is the half a party- Larry Sabato
