Hate to see Mo go. But if it increases the odds of beating the Crazy Lady, Ms. Reed will have done the country a great service.

I spent a few years working in DC for two congressmen - one Republican and one Democrat. What most folks don't understand is that 90% of being a Representative is administrative stuff and getting a local agenda pushed - money for bridges, getting locals put on important staff, etc. etc. Very little of it is actually "politicals" and even that Bachmann hasn't done. Bachmann appears to have shirked all her duties to just be the voice of the Tea Party. That's fine but she should take the honorable route of Governor Palin and quit. She can still be on Fox News but she won't be lying to her constituents. Bottom line is that she doesn't do her job. There are plenty of other conservatives in her district that would be more than happy to just do the job.

Will win hands down. The last thing we need is another liberal in office making decisions on "our" behalf.

How about Oprah? She has millions to buy a house in the richest part of the 6th district, then claim to represent the poor. How about Alec Baldwin? Or Sean Penn, he loves communist dictators like Hugo Chavez. He would be a great Democrat candidate. Then Democrats need to import as many non-residents of the 6th district as possible. A sudden influx of voters from the 4th and 5th districts is doable. Just rent lots of buses on election day. Tell the election judges they are moving in permanently to the 6th district. Our Secretary of State will cover for them.

Defeating Bachmann is a huge undertaking. Now 100% of the Democrats resources can be directed towards that noble goal. The culture of politics will be improved by leaps and bounds with Bachmann out of office.

is starting to realize which way the wind is blowing. I've heard it said that Bachman isn't effective in Congress, but if our Congressman isn't accurately reflecting your views and doing what you want, then it doesn't matter how effective they are. Congress wasn't formed to "make sure the state gets its fair share" of other tax money. Let's stop paying so much into the Fed gov't and take care of our own problems at home. It isn't Nevada's responsibility to build us a bridge anymore than we should be paying for a dam in Alabama.

We don't need another special-interest lobbyist turned Congressman. Clark is toast.
