Emptying out the ol' reporter's notebook with your Friday Flash, including some accounting for gamers in federal politics and Rick Perry's short, unhappy Nevada campaign life:¥ The GOP's new dynamic Strip duo: Don't ask me who is Batman and who is Robin because that could end the new, beautiful friendship, but Sheldon Adelson and Steve Wynn are putting their money where their anti-Democratic Party mouths are. Wynn has become Fox News' favorite interviewee with his anti-President Barack Obama polemics while Adelson has always been a reliable Republican donor.

President Barack Obama should not bother coming to Nevada. Rep. Shelley Berkley might as well start drafting her concession speech now. Nevada Democrats on the ballot here in 2012 are an endangered species.That was the message reverberating across the country in the wake of new Rep. Mark Amodei's smashing special election victory Tuesday ? a frothing hysteria from rabid Republicans and echoed (with only slightly less mouth-foaming) by those with foggy telescopes in the capital media.

Democrats dismiss Amodei's victory in district that has always gone to Republican candidates.

So when a creepy congressman who has a sexting disorder becomes a distraction and liability, fretting Democrats line up to defenestrate him. But when an even creepier senator has an affair with a staffer, reveals himself to be a world-class hypocrite and importunes supplicants to hire the cuckold, Republicans say nothing.Because proportionality is so often lost in politics, especially in the 24/7 Web world where every gesture and expression is analyzed in microscopic detail, the differences between Anthony Weiner, who seems headed for resignation, and John Ensign, who has fled the capital ahead of an expulsion, are lost.

It may not look quite like the space bar in "Star Wars" or, even freakier, a night at a party central committee meeting.But considering how open Nevada's first-ever House special election is supposed to be, Secretary of State Ross Miller's inspired formulation of a "ballot royale" may not quite do it justice. Miller said when he set the rules Monday that calling it, as I have done, a "free-for-all" is demeaning to Nevada voters and the process.
