It's time to get to work people. It's time to get busy. Now way, no how can we afford another two years of Joe Robach. Plus, if the dems take the state senate - and it looks like they definitely will (read the rest of the polls at the link above) - then Robach is going to be left high and dry and the gravy train is going to dry up really, really, really quick.
Dollinger is still in striking distance, but he's got his work cut out for him and we all need to pitch in here.
