    Primary Elections Musing --- Goods News for Conservatives and

    ...................... Not So Good News.

    Good News: You improved your Republican Party's chances of taking the Senate come this November with, for example, the RINO Mitch McConnell trashing of his Tea Party up-start opponent. This insures a more appealing campaign messaging to moderate voters who do not goose-step to either party's dogma.

    Not So Good News: Polling after the 2012 elections showed that the GOP had failed to significantly improve its appeal to any demographic outside already partisan voters. And, as other polling – including internal Republican analysis – has shown, without demographic expansion, the GOP is doomed anyway.
    I am 100% convinced the internet and social media are not the salvation to human civility.

    guess it depends on which polls you are reading. Also depends on which race you are talking about, the one in particular that folks are whooping about, they are whooping for the right reason, but not necessarily the right casusation. If the tea party candidate had won, the state would have lost it's influence because of having to give up the leadership position. Lots more involved in this primary than the political spin folks want to talk about. All the facts would not really help their desired propaganda.

    Please conservatives send money to Mitch now --- he is going to be attacked!

     photo 102352477-mitch-mcconnell.jpg

    After all Mitch will have to answer why he supported:

    *** A government shutdown to complete subvert the constitutional process a law must go through. In a failed attempt to defund an existing law.

    *** Over 40 attempts to repeal the ACA a great cost and waste of time.

    *** No jobs bill passed since he has taken the GOP Senate leader.

    GOP Sees Primaries Taming the Tea Party - WSJ.com

    "Republican Party leaders Tuesday made significant strides in their effort to defang—or at least co-opt—the tea party as an insurgent political force, as GOP voters rejected a number of antiestablishment candidates in primary elections...

    But that doesn't point to any shift to the political center among Republicans on Capitol Hill, or a return to a pre-tea-party era, when compromise with Democrats wasn't viewed with such deep suspicion."

    I think it's time the nation threw the Tea Party onto history's bonfire, to accompany the Know-Nothings, Bull Moosers, and Free-Soilers.*

    Give the Tea Party a tad more time to heal. After all, they are just Republican's still angry being double-crossed by GW Bush and his Administrations increasing the national debt, stealing their freedoms, and increasing the size of government.

    There are 435 House of Representatives seats up for election. Only 30 of those are in contention. That's right: the American People overwhelming dislike their Congress, but are automatically returning 93% of them (or handpicked successor) to office. Congratulate yourselves!

    There are 405 House races where the frontrunner has a 90% chance of winning
