Todd Akin vs. Elizabeth Warren

If it were just Akin & Warren that would be one thing; but there are many more. Jesse Jackson Jr won a LANDSLIDE re-election from a psych ward at the Mayo Clinic. He's under criminal indictment and is in plea negotiations with the feds. Charles Rangel is a big-time tax cheat who should be in prison, let alone be re-elected for the second time after he was busted. On the other hand, Republican Duke Cunningham rots away in federal prison for taking payoffs. Bill Clinton serially harrassed women, perjured himself, was impeached (though not convicted by the Senate), but today is held in awe as the most popular Democrat in the country. This double-standard is allowed to exist because the media allows it to, promotes it, and uses it as a weapon.

Don't Blame Romney

Gee Annie-Get-Your Brains, you glibly throw Akin, Mourdock, Angle, and O'Donnell under the blame bus, but ignore that the wetness-of-your-life, Chris Christie, really screwed the pooch with his photo op bear hug on Obama. It's also mental mdigets, like you, who berate aynone other than establshment candidates that are the problem, not the Tea Party or any other conservative faction. Instead of supproting and standing behind these other candidates, you and the rest of the Republican establishment either abandon them or bad-mouth them so they are unelectable. The Democrats stand behind their misfits and they wind up winning, a al Jesse Jackson Jr, who won a landslide from a psych ward in the Mayo Clinic and tax cheat Charlie Rangel.

I raise your horsefeathers and call Bullhockey on you! You might want to duck so that my point doesn't hit you squarely in your forehead the second time around. Akin was not the establishment candidate in the primary and the RNC & RNSC were more than happy to dump him after his gaffe. The Dems, on the other hand, rally around there guys and help pick them back up after they've fallen. They do what Liebau suggests Republicans do, fight back, right or wrong. The fact that so many Tea Party candidates don't well is because the GOP establishment refuses to support them, allows the DNC to brand them, and then not defend them. The establishment's excuse is that they were flawed candidates, when in fact it is the establishment that is flawed

Good riddance to the New Whig Party, aka, the GOP. They somehow managed to pull defeat from the jaws of victory. Here's to the new Conservative Party! BTW: Christie is toast! Forget about any aspirations for national office, he won't win re-election for governor next year. Conservatives will abandon him and he may even get a primary challenge.

Carol, you hypocritically speak out of both sides of yuor mouth. On the one hand, you state that Republicnas should defend themselves from DNC attacks, no matter how outlandish; then, on the other hand you pompously excoriate Akin for all sorts of ill behavior. Shouldn't the GOP have rallied around their candidate in the same way the Dems rallied around their flawed candidates? Heck, Jesse Jackson Jr won a landslide re-election from a Mayo Clinic psych ward! Abandoning Akin and Mourdock when they need support the most was cowardly and enedmic of the GOP's inability to grow a backbone.
None of these characters are truly Conservative-inspiring. If Huntsman and Paul are conservatives then I'm a chicken and off to lay some eggs. Remember that Coulter was pushing turncoat Christie for President. Miller is the very definition of a neocon, as he turned right on national defense and financial issues, but is still a social liberal. Krauthammer is an establishment guy and was a major player is foisting Romney on us at the expense of other truly Conservative primary candidates.
For months I have thought that a Romney loss would create a rift in the Republican Party. Well, last night's fiasco proved worse than I imagined as the GOP may have even lost seats in the Senate. The Republican Party has become the New Whig Party and is marching towards irrelevancy. It may be time for the Tea Party to split off from the rotten core and and form something better.
Oh puhleeze, evryone knows Liberals are heartless!

The 12 Key Senate Races To Watch In 2012

I really believe we could see a rift in the GOP if Romney loses and/or the Republicans do not take back the Senate. Look at the presidential options they given us since Reagan - GHW Bush, Dole, GW Bush, McCain, & Romney - all mealy-mouthed middle of the road RINOS. The party consistently backs mushy-middle Congressional & state office candidates over conservative or TEA Party candidates. Establishment pundits tout establishment types over outsiders and then abandon them when the going gets tough. The Republican Party was formed from the Whigs when they too lost their way; it took only six years for the new Republicans to capture the White House. Maybe it's time for a new Conservative Party to form out of the ash heap that is the GOP.
Shades of Arlen Sphincter! A politician that neither party likes.
