    They believe that. And so do their voters. And you'll never convince them otherwise.

    Expect nothing else from people who insist their bigoted denial of others' civil rights is their "religious freedom."

    Steve King is in something like a R+30 district. He's safe.

    I was going by an IA newspaper editorial. Should have known.

    It would be really nice if sane Republicans started challenging these jackas-ses in the primaries.

    They did. They got primaried.

    Women and I have an understanding. They tend to stay away from me, and I tend to understand that I'm repulsive to them. It's not my favorite understanding.

    Bathroom bill is failing right now but itís close enough with ballots still to count.

    Our incumbent Dem Mayor is cruising to reelection.

    Of course, according to comments by conservatives, the mail-in balloting is a liberal conspiracy designed to ensure liberal candidates are elected.

    Unless there is a subsidy for the stamp, vote by mail constitutes a poll tax. Violation of the 24th.

    Wrong as usual. Mail in ballots are postage paid. Of course.

    Just say what you mean: "don't let people vote; it's inconvenient for the rich."

    Actually they werenít postage paid but there were multiple drop off locations. And you had two weeks.

    I'd say Walker. I don't ever remember a situation where a governor tried to have a special election cancelled because he was afraid of his party losing even though the results won't change the partisan advantage in the state house. It's mindboggling.
