That really didn't take long.
The Allen West re-elect in Florida is a bizarro version of the Joe Walsh race in Illinois. Both men make the top of Daily Kos if they so much as breath hard into a microphone. West, faced with a possible career-ender in a tough district, chose to run for re-election in a safer seat. Walsh skipped out on an intra-Republican primary in order to run in a seat drawn to elect a Democrat like Tammy Duckworth. Both races are freak magnets for campaign money -- West raised $2.3 million in the most recent quarter. But all know who's going to win these races. Thus: Trolling.
