Because you know the brave-hearted members of Congress and pundits will.

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Democrat Alan Mollohan became the first member of the U.S. House to be ousted this spring primary season, after his opponent mounted a campaign that questioned the 14-term congressman’s ethics and support for federal health care reform.

Yeah, that first part will be missed by the talking heads entirely. Meanwhile his opponent in the general dispatched two full-out teabaggers. So we know where Don Blankenship’s money will be going…to both.

Yes, this will be talked about, well the first part anyway — while this is ignored entirely:

Calling President Obama a “socialist” may not carry the punch some of his opponents had hoped for, given a new poll that found Americans are “not so negative” about the word and young people have essentially the same feelings about “socialism” as they do the word “capitalism.”

No word on how much Vaseline Glenn Beck had to put on his eyelids last night.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
