23. There's a pretty big hole in your theory

Blue Dogs aren't in the middle.

"In the middle" would be the middle of political opinion of the country. Not between the two political parties.

Now, a whole lot of people lazily assume "the middle" is between the two parties. That stopped being true in the 90s when the Republicans started their sprint to the "insane" region of the right.

"The middle" is now held by moderate Democrats. Blue Dogs are to the right of the middle. Republicans are waaaaaaaaaaaaay off to the right.
