That’s my take.

Republican’s know that their “brand” is in the toilet. The word “republican” did not appear on anything. They have one issue, “open government,” and it is an issue that doesn’t really resonate outside of the blogs.

Voters have more practical concerns. Does this candidate hate government? Or does the candidate think the government has a legitimate role in providing needed services which help ensure that the benefits of capitalism accrue to everyone not just the privileged few?

Copeland chalks it up to the Dems registration advantage. (..cough…In a district that is 55% R & I…bullshit…cough….)

What ever get’s you through the night Charlie. Keep bellyaching but expect more Democratic pick-ups.
