Never could understand why Coulter wouldn’t endorse Schiff.

In one sentence, Ann Coulter pretty much summed everything up.

And Linda McMahon, wasn't even a tea party candidate, this made nooooo sense.

You are not a better candidate if you can’t win the primary.

All candidates who have a lot of baggage from their previous life are going to get drawn off message and have to spend way more time playing defense and talking about that crap than they would like. Some manage to win despite this handicap but we’ve seen others who could not.

Primaries are for the little people, you know, the voters. Honestly, how could anyone have won in CT? They voted for a guy who out and out lied about serving in Vietnam and was an absolute dud in every debate. Bottom line, if Blumenthal had died in the middle of the campaign, he still would have won.

CT is populated with old money lib elitists, entertainment types who work in NYC and Wall Street bailout babys.

The demographics of the state make it hard for a Repub to win no matter what the circumstances.

Schiff would have been one of the best in the Senate. He’s the kind of person we need in any office right now.

Yes, one constant with all the loser Senate candidates - COD, McMahon, Fiorina - they never held elective office... and Ken Buck held only a minor office.

The winners - Toomey, Rubio, Kirk, Portman,etc. - all held office before.

Given that, we were more likely to win with Simmons in CT, Mike Castle in DE, and ... Chuck Devore in CA. (!)

They are both useless for statewide office in Connecticut.
Simmons = NARAL
Schiff = comedy hour

“in a hierarchy, everyone tends to rise to their level of incompetence”.

In my estimation there are only 3 possible outcomes for the next few decades. In order to maintain some semblance of rights under (albeit strained) constitutional law, we either split the minority vote or white democrats moderates completely break from their liberal overlords. The third and seemingly more likely option is that vast numbers of Americans stay stuck on stupid and our country becomes a despotic banana republic within our or our childrens’ lifetimes.
