    Somebody in the MN state GOP must be thinking, "this person is a liability." Particularly in granite countertop districts, there is no shortage of Patty Murray types with free time, a husband making seven figures, and nothing to lose, who can run "soccer mom with plain old common sense" insurgencies and win. The RNC loves them, because when they get to DC they're slack-jawed rubes who will vote with the whip for the next ten terms.

    Nobody wants to be associated with a woman who at any moment might tweet how "there are some overlooked good ideas" in Mein Kampf, and a sitting Rep is a log jamming hopefuls coming up from below. I'm very surprised the state and national party haven't decided she has passed her expiration date.

    Youre confusing one fact - district 6 has almost half of the states exurbs - which is true. Anoka cty has 10+ major exurbs all by itself.

    And the other as an inference you made - which that Bachmann being elected is due to 'rednecks' in small northern areas of district 6. This is incorrect. The suburbs and exurbs of Anoka, Washington and Wright have about 280% the population of the other more northerly counties combined.
    I'm not sure what you're even arguing.

    The second half of your post is just confusing. I never said that she was elected solely by the northern counties. You're continuing to ignore the other points I made, focusing in on one of them, and then hanging my entire argument on that ONE point.

    I'm guessing you missed the part where I said:

    I think it's 50% the DFL nominating a couple of really terrible candidates and the other half is magic. Not sure about the party nomination. I'm sure she was a moonbat before, but it wasn't common knowledge. Now that she's got the nomination, she's going to hold onto it until she loses an election.

    Anoka and Washington are not exurbs.

    I'm guessing you missed the part where I said:
    The area close to the metro aren't Bible-thumpin' rednecks. Especially in northeast Blaine and the southeastern portion of Washington County (Woodbury, Lake Elmo). Educated, white, and rich.

    It's the northwestern section of the district that's just absolutely full of the north's version of rednecks. All you have to do is look and see St Cloud in the grouping and it pretty much explains everything .

    Honestly, I don't know if it would matter. Unless the DFL runs a candidate that isn't a complete moron. The DFL has put up some pretty awful candidates up for election. They really should feel embarrassed.

    Some will claim that the districts were gerrymandered to marginalize the DFLers. I don't see it personally.

    Neither. I don't think the lines were drastically changed from the last few elections. Could be wrong though.

    The way my district used to be drawn the Republican could drop a steaming deuce right on stage during a debate and still take 70%.

    I would say just write her off as an entertaining moonbat. Otherwise it's just too depressing.
