Taking Back The House

Posted by Nicholas Beaudrot of Electoral Math

As Atrios points out, running for Congress is one of the most thankless and humiliating tasks in politics. It's even more thankless when you're running an uphill battle against an incumbent. But this year, the DCCC has done a phenomenal job recruiting quality candidates for just such races.

Out here in The Other WashingtonTM, Peter Goldmark, a farmer from a famous political family in the area, is going to run for Congress in the rural 5th CD, while already Darcy Burner and Randy Gordon have lined up to run in the suburban 8th CD. There are plenty of others out there; one of my favorites is David Harris, who's running against "Smokey" Joe Barton in the Texas 6th. If you've got your own, throwing them some scratch before the end of the quarter is a good idea. If you're looking for a "pet candidate" go check out the DCCC's list and throw them some scratch.

David Harris looks pretty awesome in his Hacketty way, and Joe Barton is the ultimate Big Oil stooge. This is really one to hope for.

Is it wrong that every time I type in "follow me to DC" I think of that SportsCenter commercial where they test the studio's Y2K capacity, and Charley Steiner dresses up in war paint and yells "Follow me! Follow me to freedom!"

Saw on MTP that Brooks said that he "firmly believes" that Bush was willing to loose the 2006 elections for Iraq.

For some reason this struck me.
