Tim Griffin, the Tea Party Repub that represents my district, has decided not to seek re-election! I'm so freakin' happy! One less TPR seat in the House. He is citing "family concerns," but I think it's more likely that his constituents (including me) have slammed him via phone, email, twitter, FB, etc. for his part in the government shut down.

Yay! I hope the tea party gets driven out of nearly every office. Then maybe the government could accomplish something again.

(Oh, did you see that a judge in Texas switched parties from Rep. to Dem?)

That's my hope as well. They came into office specifically to damage the govt, to try and make it "small enough to drown in the bathtub." If we can get them and their obstructionist tactics out, we may be able to move on into a better future.

And no I haven't seen anything about the Texas judge. Awesome!

I'm afraid he's planning on running for Governor.

I'm just going to believe he won't win :). We need a good Dem to run against him.
