With the mainstream media firmly in the tank for the Ds and against the Rs, there is little that could be done to make the Rs "popular".

Jay_P claims the media is on the side of liberals because conservatives are generally "right-wing religious freaks". Harken back to the 2008 Election, will you Jay? Let's set the stage - one candidate sits in the pew of a racists, bigotted "Christian" church for 20 years; claims the "extremist" pastor is his mentor; is married by that pastor; exposes his children to this church and pastor's views; and, then disowns the church/pastor when tough questions are asked. The other candidate was loved by the media for his "rogue" tendencies, never appeared religious, came out against torture and was seen as bi-partisan. Who did the media go all-in for during this election?

Republicans don't control the U.S. Senate and they don't have the presidency. Instead of wasting time and energy in doomed efforts to defeat President Obama's Cabinet nominees or sucking up to illegal aliens, why not focus on issues where Republicans can be off-the-charts popular while forcing Democrats into taking stupid positions?

After the slaughters at Virginia Tech, Aurora, Colo., Tucson, Ariz., and Newtown, Conn., every sentient person knows we need to do something about institutionalizing the mentally ill and -- at the very least -- keeping guns out of their hands.

That happens to be impossible right now....
