There is little doubt that Democrats generally will do well Tuesday. And, if District 3 voters are dissatisfied with Shadegg's conservative politics, Lord may join a large freshman class of Democrats.
But local voter dissatisfaction is one thing. What Moulitsas seeks has the unseemly scent of wild-eyed vengeance. The fellow is looking for GOP bodies over which to stand.
The Arizona Republic has urged District 3 voters to re-elect Shadegg. As "Kos" himself notes, Shadegg is the "topmost conservative in the House."
But now we add another reason to support the incumbent: Politics isn't - or shouldn't be - blood sport. Re-elect John Shadegg and give an out-of-state political barbarian something to weep about on Election Day.
