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.

This is the greatest political night of my lifetime. We’ve had a few heartbreaks but that’s part of the game. I don’t think more “establishment” GOP candidates would have done much better against Coons, Bloomenthal, etc. We can’t follow the “lesser of two evils” strategy that’s led us into the wilderness. The Tea Party movement is right to push candidates that actually stand for something. That is the only path that leads to long term victory.

There are certainly critical lessons that the Tea Party movement needs to take away from this experience but all-in-all tonight is a titanic victory for the movement.
