that's the thing - with an incumbent there is a whole existing network of donors and name recognition w voters that goes with it .  with an open seat, all the nutjobs come out (esp w repubs, like you saw in Alabama) and funding becomes more challenging - so the probability of seat retention by the incumbent party goes down, regardless of the party in charge.

Yes, but the dems running nutjobs too.  In Cali, the dem primary is shaping up to be how radically anti-trump can you make yourself seem.

Will de Leon unseat Feinstein in the primary, not overly likely, but something could happen.  Yea, let's replace Feinstein with the guy authoring the State Sanctuary law.

Not sad to see Ryan go, just suspecting we will see the vacancies result in more radical and more entrenched Congress.

I don't blame them for not wanting to play in the world of Trump, but that means the ones that come after want to play there.

For example, and this is just one example, one of the leading repub to replace Paul Ryan is Paul Nehlen, a white supremacist who was suspended from Twitter for his bigotry (but I am sure someone here will find a way to defend him as well)

I will defend him by saying that he's no more racist than the liberal trolls on Talk Irvine.

You are projecting.  Unlike those of you with Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS), I don't obsess over this stuff.  Once an election is over I move on with my life.

Ha, this is epic

just look at the non stop barrage of posts on this forum after the election -- lots of insecurity here

its ok to chill once in a while -- being uptight about your viewpoint 100% of the time means you will end up calling people names and resorting to defending genuine bad actors like that Wisconsin white supremacist you otherwise probably know very little about

You can't put down a bad actor while acting as one yourself.  The guy from Wisconsin is wrong because he uses made up lies to spread hate, but when you make things up to sow your own division, it puts you on equal footing with him.

So people who don’t agree with your viewpoint are the same as neo nazis ? Do you realize how ridiculous and childish it makes you ?

When you are done bawling we can continue this discussion further
