Sounds like a good Christian beat out an establishment flumkie.

I agree with her. God IS punishing us for murdering babies and tolerating
Sodomites

Yeah
He did it with Sodom and Gomorra. Guess you don’t believe in the Bible

Unless one is an atheist, there is no doubt that God controls the weather, from sunshine, to floods, to tornados and even hurricanes.

Of little consequence, since this is a heavily Dem district.

“He didn’t have an idea for economic stimulus and wasn’t interested in raising the minimum wage,” said Atanus.

Does it really matter who wins the GOP nomination, much less by how much? Will s/he get as much as 40% in the general election?

She can win.

She needs support of the party and a national media platform for her message.

She needs a psychiatrist.

“Does it really matter who wins the GOP nomination”

Yes it does because Hollywood, the media, the comedians, and the democrat party will make her into the poster child for the GOP.

In the end Mark Sanford resigning as SC governor was no big deal except he made the GOP the butt of jokes for 2-3 years.

Ditto for “I am not a Witch” candidate from Delaware.

If they seriously want to get in a pissing contest on who has the nuttier candidates, the Dems have no competition. “57 states” “Guam tipping over” “Sharks still swimming slave ship routes looking for meals” “The Constitution is 400 years old” and on and on...

The woman collected her nominating petitions by herself and qualified for the ballot without the help of the Republican Party.

The Illinois Republican Party establishment is criticizing her now, but did not recruit anyone to run in the district.

Add to that, if there’s no gaffe to be found, they simply lie and make it up (i.e. Palin’s “I Can See Russia...”).

Wow! There are 24,000 Republicans in Chicago? Who knew? I thought everybody, including the dead, voted democrat there.

Sounds like the Democrats pulled their own version of "Operation Chaos" here.

Fortunately for Akin, not his identical twin.

If Jesus Christ Himself came again, changed water into wine, raised the dead and walked on water, they would think it was a trick.

Very sad.

Ensuring that no Republican anywhere would ever get elected for anything.

That is simply not true.

Republicans who are true conservatives are more likely to win elections than Republicans who are RINO’s are who are almost indistinguishable from their Democratic opponent.

I understand that Atanus is in a severely gerrymandered Democratic district, but she does have a chance to win if she were to have the party’s support.
