Dan Maes for one. Jury is still out on O’Donnell and Angle.

Again, to what specifically are you referring to prove your claim that candidates are proclaiming ‘themselves to be conservatives’ after attending a few Tea Party rallies...when they are really not??
You say the ‘jury is still out’ on Angle, for example. Based upon what? Have you analyzed her voting record- or is this just some kind of generalized notion that you have of her because the MSM tells you that she’s ‘kooky’? In the Nevada State Legislature, she was consistently the *only* vote against unnecessary tax increases, and she voted against more than 100 attempts to increase taxes and fees. She introduced tort reform legislation, health care reform based upon conservative principle, etc., etc... Not to mention the fact that she has received numerous endorsements from tons of leading conservative-leaning groups and individuals- are they gullible chumps, too??
I have no problem analyzing a candidate’s record and statements in assessing where they really are on the political spectrum- but generalized perceptions won’t do...
