    Even though he was just elected Governor last year, it would be nice to see Neil Abercrombie run for that seat. It would be great to see a liberal like him back in Washington to stem the tide of the radical conservative right wingers and shut them up!

    You know...contrary to your extremist liberal fantasies, the money does eventually run out. The tidal wave of tea party backed candidates who won in November is a reflection that the American electorate is beginning to realize this.

    No, the American electorate is not that bright. Perhaps there is a think-tank intellectual streak to the moneyed interests that backed the tea party candidates, but the voting electorate showed no signs of awareness that should have been awakened a decade before by the anti-regulation-induced real estate bubble. Or perhaps a war in Iraq? These people did not object to that.

    No, these people voted for McCain/Palin, and this is their outrage. Smarter people are using the outrage to drive their agenda. Suggesting otherwise exposes your intellectual dishonesty.

    The Senate, House and Supreme Court should all have term limits.
