      Just sent you a DM. I saw your tweet and thought: “Hey, that’s the pic I should use!” But as always you’re on top of the game, Ma’am.

        Ha, just replied to ya, you lovely thing! Thank you LL, it took me, oh, 55 hours to get 30 minutes work done today, only done now – I seriously need an efficiency lesson from TODers :oops:

    Ok, I’ll say it: I *like* Twitter’s new format for personal lists, where you see tweets from your listmembers and things they retweet. I almost never look at my “Home” screen as it’s just way too busy. But with my Lists, it’s more manageable.

    Was there ever any media report that Eric Cantor’s seat was in jeopardy? I mean all we heard from the media about the primaries were that Dems were distancing themselves from PBO.

      Teabaggers can easily win in a district where less than 300K are needed. Karma is making a visit and collecting from Cantor who owes dist 7 much better and Never really paid up. I remember the lies he told in 2010 claiming that his office was shot by who knows…..the implication was by a leftie.

    Former congressman Ben Jones (D-Ga.), better known as “Cooter” from Dukes of Hazzard, has a plan to knock Eric Cantor out of the House. He’s urging his fellow Democrats to cross over and vote for a tea party-backed candidate in Virginia’s primary election.

    Dems should capitalize on this development. Whether or not there is Dem challenger, the district will likely remain in GOP control. I rarely agree with Ezra Klein these days, but he did make a good point when he said that this GOP primary does not send a good message to the public about the GOP’s attitude towards something as popular as immigration reform.

    • June 10, 2014 at 8:09 pm

      hf, I think Dem Jack Trammell can beat #Teabagger Brat – Obamacare, Immigration Reform, Equal Pay, & Sensible Gun Legislation mean way to much to a majority of Virginians and those are going to be polar differences between D & R in this race and many others on 4 Nov 2014.

      Shortly after January 1, 2015 when the 114th Congress is sworn in. Between now and then he can either take revenge on the #Teabaggers and perhaps salvage a bit of the GOP or he can keep being the POS he’s been his entire life.
