1. Let them

Why discourage that thought? Same thing happened in 2012.

2. I'm good with that.

They're overlooking one thing. There aren't enough stupid people in the USA to vote and support their inaccurate stance on all subjects that matter to most Americans. I'm not worried at all. I hope they get that false sense of security and leave their shields down. With all the controversial opinions, and the inability to get things done, how can any sane person vote for the GOP?

Nope, I'm not worried about them at all.

3. In Georgia, Kingston and Purdue will be in the runoff.

Kingston should have more support as Purdue is the only non-teakook in the race. The nominally non-teakook has 25% of the vote.

4. Georgia

Isn't it better for Michelle Nunn If Kingston wins the runoff?

5. Yes.

The polling is not clear as to who will face Purdue in the runoff. As of the past month, Kingston has been second to Purdue.

The combined vote for the tea party candidates is over 65%.

Phil Gingrey would be the best candidate as he is the weakest and his Rhett Butler routine is hilarious.
