The same sorts of vote rigging are happening in Virginia. Not to the same degree as North Carolina, Florida, and Ohio, but still happening. Primarily gerrymandering. I live in Eric Cantor's district. This district has been gerrymandered so much that Cantor's web site doesn't recognize my address as being in his district.

Maybe Cantor perpetrated some kind of voter fraud to get put on a ballot outside his district?

Just to be sure - are we talking about the same Eric Cantor who 1) undercut John Boehner in the debt negotiations and 2) voted against Stimulus Funding but showed up for many photo ops & ribbon cuttings in his district directly as the result of that same funding? Just asking.

Yeah. The same. The same Eric Cantor who is awash in Koch brothers money. His election war chest last term was over 15 million. The candidate running against him, Wayne Powell, only spent about $700,000. Powell served thirty years in the Army, is an accomplished lawyer, small business owner... would have been a great Congressman. He just didn't have enough to buy the seat.

This will do nothing but backfire on them. The voters will figure out that the GOP are running away from the tough gotcha questions. Who cares anyway. If they roll out another clown show of candidates it doesn't matter who shows the debates because they will still make fools of themselves.


They rarely even answer the questions put to them, it is usually just rhetoric with a few statistics thrown in.

Wonder what the reaction would be if CNN and NBC voted to not carry any GOP debates.


Make 'em all go to a PBS forum and let PBS invite journalists from ALL the networks!

Explain how a guy like Mitt Romney gets close to half the popular vote? He was not only a boring candidate facing an incumbent while running a campaign that made patty-cake look aggressive, but as the Obama campaign pointed out he's also just a terrible human being in general.


Here's an interesting concept. Redistrict the entire country.

o Ends the over-representation of small states and under-representation of large states in presidential voting and in the US Senate by eliminating small and large states.

o Ends varying representation in the House. Currently, the population of House districts ranges from 528,000 to 924,000. After this reform, every House seat would represent districts of the same size. (Since the current size of the House isn't divisible by 50, the numbers of seats should be increased to 450 or 500.)

Takes care of the difference between the electoral vote and the popular votes.

On that topic, all States should follow the models that Maine and Nebraska employ.
