Defining the Category...

Stretch sent this in. I think I gained five pounds from the delicious schadenfreude...


Heh.

Oh, believe me, I know. It won't last long. Five minutes after the GOP Senate is sworn in, they'll do something stupid, craven, evil, or all three. I have no misconceptions about their ability to squander this opportunity miserably. I actually can understand the mindset that says this is a good thing for the Democrat nominee in 2016 - Obama can't run, Biden is excruciatingly unlikely to get the nod, so whoever runs will have none of the stink of the administration.

Whoever the GOP runs, which at this point looks like either Jeb Bush (shudder), Mitt Romney (SHUDDER) or Chris Christie (shudder AND hide the donuts). None of these are appealing choices, nor choices that have any chance of winning in 2016. I don't care how great Jeb Bush may or may not be, his last name is "Bush", which means the media will do everything possible - including outright lying - to make sure he never wins. Romney already lost to what may have been the weakest candidate for re-election ever. And Christie, well...

I'm not optimistic about 2016, not at all - but for now, we revel in the gnashing of liberal teeth.

That is all.

Jeb was a great governor and would make a good president in my opinion, but you are right, the last name will guarantee a 100% Hillary presidency

Look at Bobby Jindal. Hits all the ethnic buttons, is smart, has improved his state tremendously, and is not afraid of a fight. Good man.

This map is missing some blue in it for Illinois.

It got Crook county, the quad cities, and East St. Louis but has not got Cairo (which has been blue for about 20 years).

Joseph in IL
