Some good news to go with all the GOP Congressional retirements

Here's a stat that should be telling on the Royce/Issa seats: in the last 3 midterms, in situations where incumbents have retired from districts carried by the opposite party in the most recent prez election, the incumbent's party has batted 0% trying to hold it (0/10).

4. But why do I think about rats fleeing a sinking ship - one that they willingly sunk?

Those 'uglican rodents seem to foul the nests just before leaving for jobs in the media (JoeS) or lobbying or think-tankies.

It's almost like they have planted a time-bomb set to go off late 2018.

Since Rove's stink is not about and Gingrich is still a dithering idiot, who could be behind this plant? Could it be Bannon? Or the Bush klan? Do the kleptomaniacal Mercers really want to throw a grenade in the heart of this government?

I really doubt that this is being orchestrated by an overarching genius (no, not you stable boy). And I'm sure that some foreign despot wants us to dissolve into an unmanageable mass.

5. Yep.

They are aware, and thatís why they are not running. And they get to keep the war chest.
