Our state representative's campaign called me and said she was supported by such and such "family" organization and WOULD NOT RAISE TAXES. I had voted for the woman in every election and thought she was a Democrat, but the lady on the line hadn't said it so I asked to make sure "Is she a Democrat?" Silent pause, then a weak voiced "yes", and I said "GOOD, I will vote for her then, I wouldn't vote for a Republican if they were the last human being on Earth." She acted like she didn't know what to say, it seemed she was waiting for some Republican to curse at her or something.
She won re-election, this is Lexington afterall, a college town with 'baggers being countered by educated folks. I don't know what she was afraid of, the general atmosphere I suppose.
