Democrats are in a curious political position in this year’s congressional election campaign. Their chance of avoiding political disaster depends more on the Republicans offering up another batch of right-wing dimwits as candidates and less on convincing voters that that the good times are back.

So far, establishment GOP candidates has done fairly well fighting off challenges from the tea party, which does not bode well for Democrats.

It must be pretty bleak for the RAT party when their best “hope” is what the other party does, not what ‘they’ can do.

David Horsey draws some clever cartoons, but he is a hardline liberal Democrat, as he frequently demonstrates.

I wonder what his cartoons would look like if Benghazi had happened while there was a Republican President?

Looks like ‘Rat strategy to limit losses is to put forth drivel in the LA slimes, in a weak attempt at reverse psychology... Rs win if they just shy away from the GOPtp.

Once in a while he has one that is non-partisan or even makes fun of his own side.

There was one a while back showing the Democrats about to host a big triumphant reception in honor of Hillary for President in 2016, when one of them asks "What is Plan B?" and the other responds in shock, "Plan B?"

Yes, we all remember how the Tea Party kookiness in 2010 produced a Democratic landslide.

Hey, there were many here who immediately jumped to his defense claiming he said nothing wrong, I can only assume that they didn't know that.

So, we can only defend someone if they are a TEA Party candidate now?

True. He was McCaskill's choice.

I cant stop freepers from defending RINOS like Chris Christie here, but I must warn you that they will get lots of grief here for doing it.

Not everyone here is as civil as I am. I might have some fun with them as well,
