Quackwacker, you could turn out to be right about people supporting Cathy.
What might turn out to be more important, though, is that the general public has gotten a glimpse of the "character" of these politicians ... "If you disagree with me, I'll find a way to punish you." That is a very scary message to hear from someone to whom you have given a lot of power over your govt. It is counter to the very basis of what this nation was founded upon.
