The political discourse in this nation has reached the lowest level of civility I've seen in my entire lifetime, which only makes me happy that whatever time remains to me is a great deal more brief than what is behind me. Yep, that's how perky The Usurper's reign is making me feel.

But let's talk about Republicans. It is apparent that way too many Republicans have failed to learn the lessons of 2006 and 2008! Already the "eat our own" idiots are hard at work trying to promote THEIR presidential candidates for 2012, all the while dissing those they perceive as a viable threat, such possible candidates as the excellent Sarah Palin who may or may not be interested in running at that time.

Chief among those already jockeying to position themselves for 2012 (apparently the 2010 election matters not one jot to these morons) are the Ron Paul afficianados. Hey, dopey Paulmaniacs, your candidate didn't make a ripple in 2008; why would we want to revisit that disaster? Regardless of that, priorities of far too many well known Republicans are seriously screwed up.

So a reminder. There is an election in 2010. It is a crucial election if we hope to restrain the Botox Princess, Senator Cadaver and all their like-minded lunatics from running our country irretrievably into the ground. So quit spending your time, energy and money on dissing other Republicans and put some energy into replacing a LOT of Democratic members of the House of Representatives and however many Democrats (Senator Cadaver's head is on the chopping block in Nevada - good place to spend your febrile energies I would think!) are vulnerable. Dear Lord, do we elders have to teach you to walk and chew gum simultaneously!?

Remember the golden rule: He may be a son-of-a-bitch, but he's OUR son-of-a-bitch!

As I've said before in other fora, the biggest problem with Congressional elections is this: it doesn't matter if over 99% of the people in the US hate a particular congress critter. As long as more than 50% of the voters vote for the representative, he/she/it will be re-elected. In many districts, the reps brag about how much money they've brought back to the district and how much power they have because of their seniority. Thus people will vote for the incumbent, even if they are corrupt, evil and generally despicable. They don't want to switch to a new horse and lose the mojo the incumbent has.
The same thing applies to Senators, except that they have to convince over half of the voters in the state to get re-elected.

A friend of mine lives in John Murtha's district in PA, and he said the congressman is thought of as a "god" for all the money he brings to the area. It's no wonder you can't get a decent person elected in that district.

My comment to Gayle's post is AMEN!!!
