A Republican civil war is raging, with righter-than-thou conservatives dominating ever more primaries in a fight for the party's soul. And the Democrats hope to benefit.
The latest examples of conservative insurgents' clout came Tuesday at opposite ends of the country. In Florida, political newcomer Rick Scott beat longtime congressman and state Attorney General Bill McCollum for the GOP gubernatorial nomination. And in Alaska, tea party activists and Sarah Palin

Of course the implicit wish is for us to tow the party line and vote for our better in the establishment. I mean, how dare we use our own free will to determine our future. Silly us.
In AZ, the prototypical ‘rat approved RINO charges on.
Rush will be all over this tomorrow.
The libs are sh!tting bricks.
This writer Babbington is either insane, drunk, on drugs, smoking reefer or drinking too much “Obama” Kool-Aid. What a dim bulb this buffoon must be!!! He certainly ain’t living in the real world!!!
...grabbing at straws seems to be the norm for libtards these days, especially the closer we get to November....watch for the lamearse libtard media to run more of these strawman grasps at non-extinction. =.=
Keep on dreamin’ Charlie!!!

Epic state-controlled media fail depicting Tea Party candidates as bug-eyed right-wing racist Milwaukee’s Best beer guzzling wackos.
Exactly. This is about the third or fourth article I’ve seen today about the “rift” in the GOP.
The new “Journolist” is working overtime.
The vote last night was about the anti-establishment. There’s no civil war in the GOP. The Democrats on the other hand are voting for incumbents because they love big government and want more of it.
