Non-Violent Coup, Part of Larger Intolerant GOP Narrative
This is a damn outrage, a disgusted David Brooks, the faux conservative columnist for the New York Times, declared on Sundays Meet the Press reacting to Republican Senator Bob Bennetts loss Saturday at Utahs Republican convention which chose two others to compete in a June primary for the seat. Brooks fretted he was punished for being a good conservative who was trying to get things done by bravely working with Democrats on health care and supporting TARP. Now, he repeated, he's losing his career over that. And it's just a damn outrage.

If Brooks hates it, this must be a GOOD thing!
Hey Brooks it is about the people taking control. The people are tired of the “insiders” calling the shots. Take your whining and go sit in the corner.
Losing his career?Public service was never intended to be a career.
Mr. Brooks, may you and the so-called newspaper you work for end up at the business end of either a poodle or a parakeet.
LOL! Tough nuts, ain’t it?
LOL... love the Waaahmbulance pic.
Was watching Fox news this morning and a Bennett interview... the pathetic loser was crying on camera. How sad. He ONLY got to serve far too long. Now what is that poor man going to do with himself? Poor poor man. Take your lifelong health and pension and go buy yourself a fishing pole.
You are either a Reagan conservative or F. U.
Damn outrage indeed. He should have been unplugged by the Utah Party six years ago.
Under title of "The future of democracy in America" at UVA's web site containing quotations of Thomas Jefferson, appears this statement from Mr. Jefferson:
"If we find our government in all its branches rushing headlong... into the arms of monarchy, if we find them violating our dearest rights, the trial by jury, the freedom of the press, the freedom of opinion, civil or religious, or opening on our peace of mind or personal safety the sluices of terrorism, if we see them raising standing armies, when the absence of all other danger points to these as the sole objects on which they are to be employed, then indeed let us withdraw and call the nation to its tents. But while our functionaries are wise, and honest, and vigilant, let us move compactly under their guidance, and we have nothing to fear. . . ." --Thomas Jefferson to William Duane, 1811. ME 13:29
How could Jefferson envision "our government . . . rushing headlong . . . ." or, "violating our dearest rights, the trial by jury, the freedom of the press, the freedom of opinion, civil or religious, or opening on our peace of mind or personal safety the sluices of terrorism"?
Certainly, America's Founders intended "the People" to "watch over" (Jefferson) their elected officials, and recall them when they did not do "the People's" will.
So unless I missed something, the results of our time-honored process to decide party nominations are “a damn outrage”??? Ha ha ha hahahahahaha.....
The “outrage” is that these peope think they’re entitled to a lifetime “career” on our backs.
Piss on all of them. They can all go to hell.

OXIMORON? OR JUST PLAIN MORON...........OR BOTH
This is not the coup. The coup began in 2008, and the enemy has been consolidating power since then.
This is the counter-coup.
Hey Bob,rejection hurts don’t it.Bet it doesn’t hurt as much as the realization that millions of people in this country have that their grandchildren will struggle to pay off the debts that you and your pals saddled them with.So Bob just fade away gracefully.
The Tea Partiers, that's who!
