Sad to say but these are mostly "safe" districts like the one for my congress critter, DeFazio. Unless they do something extra stupid like McKinney, they will be back. I continue to vote against Old Peter but we must not forget the support of winable districts while subjecting the politics of these 59 to public view in the hope they will do a "McKinney".

I know that my local communists, Julia Carson, is safe as can be. Every election there are a few precincts that always report last and they always have just enough votes to put her over the top in close elections. We can't even get people to work the polls in some of her precincts because it is not safe to be in those neighborhoods if you are white and/or Republican. The Sheriff used to send in workers, but they stopped that a few years ago. So now there are a good number of voting locations in Julia's district that are manned by her people only. Of course I would never want to insinuate that there is anything amiss going on at those polling places;), only that the aren't being watched. I tried to get a letter in the local newspaper two cycles ago pointing out her affliation, but they wouldn't print it.
