Every two years, like clockwork, Marinites return the execrable Lynn Woolsey to Congress. She’s so bad — by which I mean such a loopy Leftist — that I didn’t vote for her even when I was a Democrat. I was a moderate; she was, and is, a nut case. But still she wins, regularly sweeping in about 70% of the vote.
Voters here don’t care what Woolsey is, what she believes or what she offers; they just like that “D” after her name. I have no doubt but that she’ll win again this year, for precisely the same reason.
If you’re in Florida’s 22nd District, however, you have the opportunity to vote for someone special. I don’t know what the Republican/Democratic balance is in the 22nd District but, if it’s close, maybe he can win, and maybe there’ll be a true counterweight in Congress to Woolsey and her ilk. If anyone has the cojones, as a freshman Congressman, to make waves, it’s West.
