The Tea Party sent up conservative candidates in primaries in Indiana, Nevada and Connecticut who beat Republican incumbents but then lost in the general elections. One of them was an ex-witch.
Now there's a real long-term winning strategy for the GOP.
If it's going to primary a Republican senator they think is insufficiently conservative, the Tea Party wing has to make sure its candidates can win in the fall elections.
Otherwise it's just being really stupid -- and we end up with a Democrat Senate and unstoppable legislative monstrosities like the Affordable Care Act.
If Republicans really want to change things for the better, if we really want to save America from the Democrats and Obamacare, we have to win back the Senate.
To do that, Republicans need to quit fighting each other, call off their civil war and start fighting the real enemy of freedom -- the Democrat Party.
The political reality is simple: The 2013 Senate is run by the Democrats. Harry Reid never brings up a vote that he disagrees with. And until Republicans take control of the Senate, nothing will change.
So don't blame Boehner or McCain -- or any of the Republicans in the House or Senate -- for the Obamacare fiasco. Blame Obama and the Democrats. And replace them.
