Strategically and tactically, getting rid of the filibuster favors the dems on most issues in the long run. GOP just has better party unity and was just a lot better at sustaining a filibuster. Moderate Dems are just too willing to compromise, moderate GOPs are scared of primaries from right wing. People talk about the threat of packing the courts with prolife judges, but the GOP was already doing that.
Why would you be free to shoot someone?
I think slowing down and following someone in your truck is a pretty aggressive act.
You don't live in VA, do you?If the Republicans actually believe this, the Democrats will keep winning the statewide seats more often then they should.Heavy funding only goes so far. There are diminishing returns with campaign money.also, 2013 is an off-off year for elections. No presidential race on the ballot, nor any off year federal elections. Turnout models should favor the republicans.

Nothing is going "emboldens non-TPers in the GOP a bit more" in Virginia. Sarvis was irrelevant. My...

I wonder if a lot of NYers think the State Supreme Court is the highest court as it's actually the trial level court in NY and the Court of Appeals is the highest court.I find it weird that there's nothing in the bill for the intermediate appellate court, but whatever.
Even if they didn't approve the backpay, this was going to be true.
Democrats focused on turnout in 2008 and 2012 whereas GOP didn't. (In 2004 both parties went for turnout in their bases). For whatever reason, despite the vast money resources in 2012, the GOP had no turnout machine and didn't bother to build one. Easiest place for Democrats to get turnout is in the cities, where you have more voters per square mile.Percentages are bigger, but not drastically so. Clinton, Gore, and Kerry all got mid-90s (some polls say Kerry high 80's,...
