    Yes.
    Conservatism has a fantastic record in national politics because socialism is easy to deconstruct, and even easier now with the EU, Kanuckistan, and Democrats illustrating its destructive nature.

    McCain was a RINO. He didn't force the press to cover Obi's past.
    JFK today would be a Republican to the right of McCain.
    Bush 41 wasn't one, and because he caved to get along, he lost. Perot helped Clinton too.
    Reagan... well, he kicked ass.
    Bush 43 was no conservative. He spent way too much. Chip off the old block I guess.

    It will be interesting to see who emerges for 2012. Only 18 months until Iowa!

    They got caught up in a circus act.
    Had too much spiked Kool-Aid, and believed the PR. The press was AWOL.

    When a citizen asks a question of the candidate, lets him answer, and answer, and answer... only for Obi to let the cat out of the bag, and then to have the press turn on the citizen and investigate him... that speaks volumes.
    In any other election it would have been a serious blow... but... the press put the cat back in the bag by attacking Joe Citizen.

    Now we are paying for it.

    One poll asks the same question year after year... and it reveals a good majority of Americans are conservative. We only have to appeal to that bloc. Sell limited government and then follow through. It worked well for Reagan, and America after the Misery Index/Stagflation years of Carter.

    Will the new government be able to balance the budget, put a satisfactory end to the wars in the ME, reduce our appetite for drugs, put a stop to illegal immigration, get us closer to energy independence, or bring down the cost of health care?

    When a party, any party has a realistic plan to do any or all of the above, then it's time to become partisan. Until then, it's just a changing of the guard, bringing on political rhetoric, which will be simply leaping and hooting, full of sound and fury but signifying nothing.

    Which is what I expect to happen in the next couple of elections.
    In short we get the government we elected.

    Same as it ever was.

    That said,... I see the Tea Party movement as a wakeup call to both sides on the issue of government spending.

    It's been a clear and un-mistaken message that we "the people" have had enough of it.

    It doesn't work in our favor by having Dems and I's vote for our candidate.
    Just look at the last election.
    No better example is needed.

McCain also had the troubles of being a Republican after 8 years of a Republican President in office just as the housing market collapsed. So while the reasons why you've stated that McCain lost the election is the reason why conservatives such as yourself didn't vote for him, I'm sure that independents and moderates have other reasons.
    Palin reinvigorated a dying campaign.
    It may be the first time in history a VP candidate was of more interest to the press than the running mate.

    Hell, there was more scrutiny of Palin than Obama.
    She scares the living **** out of the press and the left, and for good reason.
    If she were an airhead, they wouldn't bother wasting their time, money and energy trying to destroy her.

    ..The more Republicans examined Palin’s record, the more they liked it, although some are fearful of buyer’s remorse. She was born in the conservative heartland of Idaho before moving to Alaska as a baby. At school she was nicknamed Sarah Barracuda on the basketball court because she was so competitive and she led the prayers before each game.

    She was a “hockey mom” who cut her teeth at the parent-teacher association before becoming mayor of Wasilla, a suburb of Anchorage with a population under 7,000. In 2006 she beat the corrupt male establishment in Alaska to win the governorship. She opposes same-sex marriage, but one of her first acts in office was to veto a bill blocking health benefits for gay lovers of public employees...

    ...she is an airhead. An airhead who was a few percentage points away from being vice president. Also, the press didn't try to destroy her, she did that herself. They asked her basic questions they ask everyone in politics, and her answers were disasters. The woman can't even answer a soft-ball question from her own team at Fox News, Glenn Beck asked her which founding father is her favorite. She took like a minute and a half to come up with "George Washington!" (after another "Oh...all of them!" classic Palin answer)

    She's a celebrity now, not a politician. She's closer to Lindsay Lohan than she is to Nancy Pelosi. She gets attention for that reason.

    Edit: And I wouldn't say anyone is "scared" of her. The danger of her becoming a powerful elected official has more or less passed, "the left's" only interest in the manner is making sure she stays out of public office, because there's still a following of Palin fans who think she'll be president in 2012.

    He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear

    Actually, I'd probably prefer Lindsay Lohan over Nancy Pelosi.
