    I think you need to read my post again, maybe slower this time:

    Conservative candidate in a Conservative district will win. Another Bushnevik supporter bites the dust. Now the district will truly be represented by a Conservative. The Democratic opponent is toast.

    I actually posted an article supporting my claim. Did you have a specific comment?

    Not surprising.

    Abortion & Gay Rights trumps anti-tax, smaller government, strong defense, pro-gun and pro business hands down.

    Thank you. That is the "Conservative" of today...and the GOP of today.

    The true Barry Goldwater Conservative wouldn't know the so-called "Conservatives" of today.

    I suppose. But people generally underestimate just how bad the alternative was. It's hard to be a pro-American, informed Conservative when you support an alternative which essentially collapses your country. Was the bailout an awful, awful idea? No doubt. Was it better than watching the financial sector of the country wipe out the rest of the country, destroying the dollar and the economy in one fell swoop? IMO, yes. What really bothers me though, is that there is absolutely nothing of material value which is being done to prevent the next collapse. We're enacting a horrible plan with nothing to prevent or at least mitigate the damages that will come from the next collapse.

    Ok, can someone tell me why Scozzafava tanked so hard? I saw a poll where she was in the 30s a week or two ago, and then she's at 21!

    How big of an impact did the Tea Partiers have in this route?

    Yes, we must have Republicans that are not much different, ideologically, than Democrats. Fiscal sanity is so passe.

    Got the hiccups today eh?Must be something Freudian in there somewhere.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say
