Who Was That Mosqued Man?

This is where I live. Yes! Our bigotry has gone national. Glad to see my congressional candidate of choice appear as our resident "bad ass." But he also just lost the Dem primary by a couple hundred votes, leaving us with a bit of a dud who, luckily for him if not for us, had access to a much deeper pocket than Ben Leming had. But not Republican deep. So the GOP, already holding the edge to take the open seat, now has a pretty easy road to replace Bart Gordon. Both primaries were bizarre three way races where win, place, and show were separated by mere hundreds of votes and fractions of a percent. Diane Black, the GOP nominee, is pretty crazy, but she's not the worst they had. Which is saying something.
