The real problem is that the person you want in office is the person who doesn't want to be there. It is republican tradition to burn their own when they are found to be in the wrong. However, in the democrat party, since there is no wrong, they acept EVERYBODY. Take Barney Frank as an example. His boyfriend was running a male prostitute house out of his appartment in Washington. WHen confronted with it, his resonse was "so what?" A republican would have resigned in shame.

If democratic, he will be ousted as soon as possible, if Republican, he will resign as soon as he gets a bellyfull. Or as soon as his one sinful side reveals.

Fearless people is the answer. Fearless despite our shortcomoings and our sinful nature.

So he's devised a strategy to pre-emptively sink unelectable candidates early in the process. He's formed a new super PAC to implement this strategy. It's called the Conservative Victory Project, and it's led by a guy named Steven Law, who was the head of another super PAC, called American Crossroads, which went something like 0-7 in the 2012 election cycle. (Not that anyone's counting.)

Grass-roots conservatives, needless to say, are quite perturbed. "I'm filing the...
