1. Patrick is such a nice guy and so passionate about vet issues...

Glad he got this spot - vets will get more visibility.

2. Happy for him although I wish he had tried

to go for his old seat rather than PA AG. Even with the re-districting, the seat is still swing.

3. Good we need a strong voice for veterans. I will tape it for my evening watching. Kids have the tv

4. MSNBC = NBC = GE = Propaganda

See how long the guy lasts if he says something real in this environment:

8. GE sold their stake in NBC a long time back.

And there is plenty of 'real' being reported on MSNBC.

So, whatever.

7. Glad it's the PA one... the FLA one is a DINO

The PA Patrick Murphy may have been a Blue Dog (boooooooo) but I like him anyway. He seems pretty progressive for a Blue Dog.

Patrick Murphy (D?-FLA) was worth electing to get rid of Allen West, but they should really be looking for a real democrat for that seat down there. Florida Patrick Murphy is just an opportunistic republican.

10. Blue Dog and "progressive" don't ever belong in the same sentence

Blue Dogs have that moniker precisely because they are not progressives.

9. Isn't that a particularly limited target audience?

As some point, when viewership plateaus, where's the crossover?
