If the so-called moderate majority is less conservative and committed than the Republicans currently in Congress or the ones in Congress under Bush what good are they? Political suicide is what the Republicans committed to become a minority in the first place. And what did they do: Ceased being conservative. I think you are engaging in wishful thinking. The moderate majority has no power or influence. Many moderates have been pushed over the line to conservative activists because of Obama and moderate behavior by current Republican leaders.

    Why do Democrats and Libs fear attractive female conservative candidates so much? I mean they just go insane. Maybe because they don't fit the feminist model.

    Back when I was young and impressionable, I was a big Goldwater fan and I was really wowed by his "... extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice" speech. It seemed so... right (no pun indented). Now that I'm older and, I hope, wiser, I realize that Goldwater was wrong. Extremism is a vice. It lets people justify anything. There is also the problem that not each person's definition of liberty is the same. What someone would view as being extremely right could be seen as extremely wrong by someone else.

    There is no justification for taking an extremist view of anything. But extremist don't need justification, do they because, goddammit, they are right. No need for facts when you have all that adrenalin.

    Can we try to remember that it is possible for reasonable people to disagree without either one of them being the spawn of satin?

    I'm not going to pile on all of O'Donnell's missteps, except to say that I'm positively giddy she was nominated. It's not often that a political party turns a guaranteed victory into a guaranteed defeat, for no reason other than ideological purity...especially when the electable candidate wasn't even all THAT ideologically unpure.

    If Republicans will settle for nothing less than a Senate full of Jim DeMints, then the only Republicans that will be elected are from states where people like Jim DeMint are popular. And that's simply not enough to form anything close to a majority. I wish the Senate was more liberal, but I'm a pragmatist. For example, I would never suggest that a Russ Feingold-like candidate mount a primary challenge against Ben Nelson, because I recognize that Ben Nelson is about the most liberal politician that could be elected from Nebraska. Republicans would do well to learn the same lesson.
    Castle seemed more like a liberal to me. He was for cap and tax. nuff said about him.

    O'Donnell is gaining. She's not out yet. No one thought she could win the primary either.
    I thought her ad was pretty good too.

    everyone loves a walking-talking train wreck... Just like Palin, you wonder how far she can push the 'stupid' envelope.

    Cap and trade is based on a Reagan policy for dealing with acid rain.

    Guess they don't cover that on Fox News. -- Market driven self-regulation. Free market. Get it?
