I seem to recall much chortling and other merrymaking a couple months ago around the pwoggiesphere when the lunatic fringe of the Republican party let their principles lead them into a crushing electoral defeat in a district they had held since Reconstruction. "Imagine being so rigid that you fight for what you believe in even if you think you might lose because of it!" was the basic theme.
So now, Democrats have lost a highly symbolic seat of their own and can't even console themselves with a sense of pride in their own integrity.
I am honor-bound to observe that the teabaggers have earned the right to exclaim, "Damn, it feels good to be a gangsta."
