Thursday Open Thread [3.14.13]

Filed in Open Thread by on March 14, 2013

Ever wanted to know what it was like to fall off a mountain? Here you go:

Stu Rothenberg: “While the fight for the House of Representatives will take center stage next year, another battle could be almost as important for the two parties: control of a handful of big-state governorships.”

“Republicans like to point out that while they lost the presidency and seats in both chambers of Congress in 2012, their party continues to hold governorships in 30 states, including nine of the country’s 12 largest states. But most of those governors — 23 to be exact — were elected in 2010, a great GOP year that doesn’t reflect the nation’s (or many states’) political fundamentals.”

    Tom Carper thinks that DC is lacking in Carper-esque bipartisanship.

    Nearly every night, when I return home to Delaware on the train from Washington, I hear from at least one constituent who asks me, “Why can’t Congress get its act together?”

    A concise, honest and accurate reply would be – “It is the Republicans.” Not in Carper’s warped DC bubble reality.

    Classic reply to Louis Gohmert’s remarks on Viet Nam in the TPM comments:

    “Must have been awkward talking about winning Vietnam in a room fool of draft dodgers, chickenhawks and pussies.”

    Is the constituent standing next to the woman screaming “I WANT MY COUNTRY BAAACK!!”
