    I agree that O'Donnell's a nut, but I honestly can't figure out why the left is spending so much time on her. She's going to lose. She was going to lose before she became a national story.

    In the meantime, there are literally dozens of competitive races that hold the balance of power. Those races are far more important the balance of power than O'Donnell, who most agree will lose regardless. Yet endless resources are being poured into redefeating a candidate who is doing a fine job of defeating herself without our assistance.

    Like I said, I think she's nuts but I also think it's a massive misallocation to waste time beating that dead horse. Let's beat a live horse in a competitive race instead.

    Meanwhile Obama is going to CA to shore up support for Boxer and Brown.

    In the big picture, the Tea Party is making this a year to remember

    There is a good reason to spend some time on O'Donnell and the other wingnuts. Force the Republicans to either support her outright, or to disavow her lunacy. Either way, the Democrats win. That is good politics, and also marginalizes the lunatics.

    It surely is, just as the John Birch Society helped make the Goldwater run at the Presidency a time to remember.

    I'm OK with O'Donnell losing in a year when the country can't throw Democrats out of office fast enough and with such severity that Gillibrand in NY and Boxer in CA are in a real race.

    The Republicans will remember the seats that they should have won, that were lost because the ego of the right wing Baggers nominated a lunatic. :clap2:
