Oooh ooh ooooh! Is she also one of the "values voters" boycotting CPAC because GOProud is there? (You know, GOProud, the group created because they didn't think the gays in the Log Cabin Republicans were conservative enough?)

One of the things overlooked in the last election was just how much of a drag the far right was on the GOP's results. Three out of four Tea Party candidates went down in flames in the House, and the Senate only had a 50% success rate. If not for the teabaggers (who are Birchers by another name -- the Koch brothers' daddy Fred was a founding member) the Republicans would control both Houses of the US Congress.

We are fast approaching the point where, even with FOX and FOX-lite brainwashing of the populace, it's soon going to be impossible for someone to win both a Republican party nomination and a general election above the congressional-district level. The state leges will be easier pickings, but anything requiring statewide voting (and thus the input of non-megachurch areas) dooms the GOP.

Oh, yes: Just to be clear, I specified "non-megachurch" so as to include rural and urban areas, which unlike the white-flight-dominated exurbs seem to be relatively free of the Mac Hammond virus.

By the way, guess who's been forced to choose between his blogging gig -- where he is known to make fun of Native Americans -- and his day job, where he's supposed to be representing them in court? http://tbogg.firedoglake.com/2011/01/30/a-man-called-hubris/

Let's hope that Mirengoff didn't defraud his clients the way Jack Abramoff did: http://thehill.com/business-a-lobbying/77951-man-who-blew-the-whistle-on-abramoff-tells-his-story
