So I wonder how many Floridians will think they're voting for the Daniel Webster they used to read about in history class

I have no doubt that there were people who voted for George W. Bush in 2000 because they thought they were voting for his father. Perhaps I'm wrong, but then I live in New Jersey's Fifth Congressional District, where people pull the lever for Scott Garrett every two years but still think Marge Roukema is their representative. So I'm not sure that the Willfully Ignorant who seem to comprise an increasing portion of the American population are even paying enough attention to know who they support. But now in Florida, we have a Republican nominee for Alan Grayson's seat whose name is Daniel Webster. And I wonder how many people will think they're voting for this one, when in reality they'll be voting for this one.

This is OUR guy:

Yes, he means 18th century, not 17th, so let's not have any comments about that, please. But what's important here -- having a real Democrat in Congress who isn't afraid of Republicans vs. a theocratic nutball? Or semantics.

You know what to do. Do it. Now.
