The GOP should control the US Senate today. Had the far-right not nominated utter morons like Christine O'Donnel, Sharon Angle, Richard Murdoch & Todd Akin, they would likely have the 51 seats needed to control the Senate. Was Richard Lugar "conservative" enough for some? Perhaps not, but he's a lot more conservative than his Democratic replacement. If the GOP continues to nominate old, out-of-touch white men, who have no ability to convey their message in an unoffensive or tactful manner, then they are doomed. Considering the number of Democratic Senators up for re-election last year, the GOP should today have at least 49 Senate seats. Let's not repeat this mistake next year, as it may be the last chance to win the Senate.
