There are several primary races wherein a Tea Party endorsed candidate has unexpectedly beat out a GOP candidate. The GOP is miffed about it all, and has announced in the case of the selection of Christine O’Donnell by Delaware Republicans that they will not help fund her campaign.
The GOP had better understand a couple of things, and quickly.
- It is better from our perspective, for a conservative to win than a liberal; even if it isn’t your conservative.
- The electorate is almost as ticked off at the GOP as it is at the Democrats.
If the GOP wants to win in the coming elections, it had better embrace the Tea Party rather than spurning it – or the Democrats are going to stay in control.
If the GOP allows this to happen, they are history. And incredibly stupid, as well.
Addendum: How about that? The GOP developed a brain, overnight. Good for them, there may be hope, after all.
