Quite a few RMSPs took it in the shorts, some of the gals have survived but not after some delay in doing the vote totes and one or two still may face a mandatory recount due the small margin of victory.

The problem is that more RINOs are waiting in the wings.

Don't they use the horn of RINO's for an aphrodesiac? ;-)

Rick Santorum belongs on the tragic defeat list. A great conservative senator who made one mistake.

We took Schwarz out in the primary and replaced him with a conservative.

But the losses to the Republican Party struck largely at the "centrist" wing.

No centrists, no majority ever again. We'd better hope some RINOs can win in those marginal districts in 2008.

Whoever wrote this is delusional in the implication that republicans cannot survive without conservatives (small 'c' intentional), when in fact, the opposite is certainly more true.

Keep thinking this way. Those who do are beginning to sound like all the apologists for Communism when they tried to explain it's failures. How many of you remember this argument:

"Well, of course Communism is a viable system, it's just that we haven't found the right Communists to run it all yet..."

Substitute "Consrvative" for "Communist" and that pretty much sums up the tone on FR, amongst the "REAL" conservatives (i.e. those who can't define conservatism, and can't tell you how a republic is supposed to operate, except that they know they don't like the way this one works, and who believe that what's good for Pastor Bob is good enough for them!), and the "Conservative" think tanks/organizations ever since Nov 7, 2006.

Snowe was re-elected not Collins. Snowe, running against
a moonbat's moonbat won with over 70% of the vote. Collins does not run until 2010 or 2012

The Republican Party has become the party of big-business and big-government progressivism.

So these candidates that lost were true Republicans.

RINO should be attached to people like Tancredo who is truly just a Republican in name only since he is conservative, wants a smaller government, and won't kowtow to big business' wish for exploitable illegal labor.

We lost six seats in the senate. Only two of them were listed as RINO (at least per this thread). I don't consider it a good riddance.

Must be the 'thin skin' 'liguini spined' variety of RINO's.

The make up of the HOuse and senate are nearly always the same.

About 1/3 are Conservative Republicans and another 1/3 are Liberal Democrats. The remaining 1/3 is some combination of RINOs and DINOs. When control of the house changes it is the party who loses its 'INOs that loses control. Fools in the defeated party always want to next time run members of the base. When they do that, they stay in the minority.

There are about 17 or 18 battle ground states. There are about an equal number of liberals and conservatives in a battle ground state. The election outcome is deterimined by the swing voters. Swing voters are not ideological. They sometimes vote for conservatives and sometimes vote for liberals. But they mostly vote for their own kind. That is non ideological 'INOs

What part of the party with the most 'INOs controls the houe and senate escapes you?

When the RINOs get replaced with DINOs the Liberals RULE. Ask Nancy Pelosi how that works.

A couple of errors in this:
Sherwood Boehlert, NY: defeated.
--->Boehlert retired, replaced with a 'Rat.

Jim Leach, IA: retired.
--->Leach was defeated, replaced with an ultraleft moonbat.

Scott McInnis, CO: previously retired.
--->This is a mistake on the ACU website. The scores listed for McInnis are actually for John Salazar, the 'Rat who replaced him.

This isn't a catastrophe but it's still pretty bad. Primaries are the time to deal with RINOs. Screwing up generals guarantee socialists and/or "blue dogs".

I don't trust the bark or the bite of these dogs.

I have absolutely NO sympathy for the RINOs that lost their positions. Good riddance! I am more than willing to take this teeny-tiny step backwards to get back on track for '08. (And yes, I voted a straight Republican Ticket. Always have, always will, even if it means holding my nose once in a while. A Democrat will NEVER get my vote. Ever.)

And as for the good, solid conservatives who were collateral damage? There's absolutely no doubt in my military mind that they will land on their feet and find good, productive work in the Private Sector like the rest of us. They'll be just fine. :)

I've yet to see a true conservative whine, cry and lick their wounds for more than a long weekend before they pick themselves up, dust themselves off and get on with their lives.

And if they don't? Then we got rid of another useless RINO. :)

They should also include Ken Mehlman as a defeat.
