Wisconsin is quickly turning into a Republican bastion.

Miles, by that logic Brown and Udall should be Lincoln'd. Tongue

Otherwise no surprise except that Bernie Sanders, the professed socialist, is to the right of severeal Dem senators.

Is it excessive to hold a politician's feet to the fire for giving his base the run around at every turn?

Merkley is kind of like the Sherrod Brown of Oregon.

Republicans really don't have a strong bench here and I doubt they will have a competitive challenger against him (or Kitzhaber assuming he runs for another term) in 2014.

Actually, no, no that is in fact a surprise. I'd be immensely interested to see what metrics and definitions the National Journal is using here.

His idea of freedom is - it is a bad thing and should be stopped at all costs.

Nathan-land.  As much fun as watching paint dry... literally.

Mitch McConnell more conservative than Marco Rubio? CMR more conservative than Paul Ryan? Bob Casey to Bernie Sanders' left? Something is seriously effed up with their methodology.
