To the Oregon GOP: More like this, please

The Oregon GOP has suffered from such a severe case of advanced delusional paranoia for so long now that it's teetering on the edge of total irrelevancy, which isn't really a good thing.

At LOVESalem HQ, we're no fans of the "two party system" -- we'd all be much better off with a healthy system of MANY parties, but that's not going to happen as long as we are afflicted with the winner-take-all rules that the two major parties have written into law to abet their takeover and to exclude any alternatives to the duopoly.

But, given what we're stuck with for now, it would be helpful if the GOP would stay on the good side of the sane/insane divide and offer more candidates like this more often.

(And Hall of Shame nomination for the SJ headline writer who casts Castillo and Maurer as "foes" -- two candidates running for the same office aren't necessarily or even usually "foes" or even opponents ... sometimes they're just two people who are seeking a job that only one gets.)
