I thought Angle might pull it off. But even Nevada isn't that blindly conservative I guess.

I think you have it backwards. The Republicans hurt the Tea Party candidates. You have the establishment Republicans to blame.

What about all of the Tea Party people who also voted for the establishment GOP candidates today at the polls?

I think in the senate, you might be right. It wasn’t a great night for the tea party.

Although how can anyone really complain about 6-8 pickups? I never thought we we going to win the senate, we had to have drawn the inside straight.

But the house, governorship, state houses, is another story.
Overall it was still a great night for the tea party.

That is absurd. We have a massively more conservative Senate than I have seen in my lifetime, a huge house majority and governor wins throughout the country. We knocked out feingold with a guy who never ran for anything in his life. This was almost entirely due to the grassroots movement.

More inane and insane babbling from an establishment Republican.

Your win would be nowhere as close as it is without the Tea Partiers.

What a loser!

The Tea Party won big. Every liberal douchebag Republican they got rid of needed getting rid of.

The wins in the general were all gravy.

And any Republican who wants to get all limp in the face of the coming challenges can hear the Tea Party sharpening the shivs for them too.

Ghey.

This is the first time since Jesus was a baby that Dems will have less than 200 congressman.

This is the best overall midterms in half a century.

Even with such tailwinds you can’t win them all.

I think it’s probably better to not have won control of the senate this time. Hopefully, dopey Harry Reid will continue to be the face of the ‘rat majority. That will only help in 2012.

The tea party made the repub party tonight.

You’d probably complain if you got your head cut off with a golden ax.

The Tea Party is just getting started. Things are going to get bigger and better from here. This is where America begins changing course back to the Founder’s vision.

If you don’t appreciate the tea party then I’d appreciate you just taking a freaking hike. We have not yet begun to fight!

Those who wave the surrender flag just as we engage the enemy are worthless. In fact less than worthless!! Freaking cowards!!

Lead, follow or get the hell out of the way!!

Sorry, did you not read? O’Donnell did not lose to the Democrats, she lost to the Republicans. Had the sore losers voted for substance instead of voting out of spite, she would not have ended up with more independent votes than Republican votes. Put the blame where it belongs.

I would posit that your blame game is misdirected.

The electorate is the primary culprit in this and practically all elections. Our society is overflowing with takers who almost, if not already, outnumber the producers, and that spells eventual doom for our society as nothing will reverse that trend outside of unprecedented bloodshed via a civil war, IMO.

In any case, the Tea Party is currently the only hope at the ballot box, IMO.

Paladino beat Rick Lazio in the primary. Rick Lazio was the best NY republicans could come up with. (?) Lazio would have done no better, maybe worse than Paladino.

I think you have just completely missed the whole damned point! It never was, has been, or will be about helping the repubs or the dems. It’s about consevratism and the rooting out the trash that makes the repub party the Dem Lite Party.

On the other hand, Ron Johnson in Wisconsin was a great candidate who was inspired by the Tea Party movement. He was just an anonymous businessman six months ago.

The key is finding GOOD conservative candidate and vetting their backgrounds. No more witches — even the good kind.

You seem to leave out the “Ruling Class” nominee’s in your not so well thought out vanity post. Linda McMahon, CT, lost.
Floria, CA lost, Whitman, Ca lost. I wish they would have won. So, what does that tell you about the “Ruling Class” GOP nominee’s? The fact is no party WIN’s every race. Unfortunate, but true.

The good news is that overall, we won BIG tonight. In addition, The Tea Party will have two years to find and vet some great candidates if the “Ruling Class” puts up more of the likes of Crist, and Castle.

ARE YOU FREAKING INSANE?

The Tea Party lost a couple of Senate races, and won some others.

And won dozens of House seats, and HUNDRED’s of statehouse seats, some by majorities not seen in a HUNDRED YEARS, and they will control REDISTRICTING.

Redistricting will have huge impact on the 2012 elections, too.

Senator elect Ron Johnson in Wisconsin was not a politician. He went to a TEA party and decided to run for the Senate. Tonight, he handed Russ Feingold’s ass to him. Hmmmm.

Flippin’ Tard. I mean no disrespect tlb. I have been railing against that fatass Rove all night and that Richard Head Mutt Wrongly.

I think you mean well but, well... it ain’t right.

I mean Rove calls out Christinne, who clearly won as a result of the peoples vote or if you prefer the Proletariat but really, the Tea party is a failure?

Seriously, the Tea Party created the energy to get us over the top and you are dissing them?

Brother, get real.

With respect and regards.

JD Hayworth is the only reason John McCain didn't "reach across the aisle" for the past year on Cap N Tax, Obamacare, Comprehensive Immigration Reform and any number of other atrocities.

Plus, Hayworth wasn't the Tea Party candidate in Arizona. JOHN McCAIN was. Just ask him. Toward the end of the primary, McCain was attacking Hayworth as a 'Washington Insider' and portraying himself as the founder / leader of the Tea Party.

Plus, noted Tea Party spokesperson Sarah Palin campaigned for McCain at the expense of Hayworth. For that matter, so did nearly every Republican within a 20,000 mile radius.

If it wasn't for McCain, it would have been business as usual in Washington the past few months, with RINO's forming gangs of 14 and such and putting their fingerprints all over every piece of legislation, so that it could pass as "bipartisan".

JD Hayworth threw himself on a grenade for all of us, and he deserves the thanks of a grateful nation.
