Theres a new rule in American politics: Republican senators and Senate hopefuls who are too close to Washington and show streaks of moderation are toast or most certainly poised for a grilling of their lifetime...

OTOH, I think sometimes we Tea Partiers despair too much when we don't win every battle. That is wrong, too.
Change takes time...incrementally is often the only way to reach the goal.
You know - I never thought about it but you’re right! You can count on the media ignoring the obvious so that they can keep pretending to the public that the Tea Party is a “fringe group” - especially now that their “pet group” of Occupiers is being exposed as nothing more than lazy criminals and terrorists. Funny how the planned bridge explosion news died the same day it started when it was Occupier organizers who were involved. Had this been Tea Party organizers, we would STILL be reading about it every day and the Tea Party would be all but eliminated as a credible group.
All this fretting about the demise of the moderate republican amuses me. Please find me a moderate democrat. Please, anywhere. Find me a democrats who’s not a socialist.
America doesn't want Liberals and it doesn't want squishy Moderates!
Thad Cochran needs to retire
The last moderate Democrat was Tip O’Neil.
Thank you for your thoughts. They give us hope.
I'm not so sure. I think he was a closet Marxist who managed to keep it hidden well.
The peons and peasants are gettin uppity...
Once enough Tea Party candidates win I hope a move is made for term limits.
The tea party completely blew it and got hosed with the presidential primary by not selecting, backing and uniting behind a legitimately small-government (but not Ron Paul wacko) candidate after the 2010 victories.
Tea Party wins - back page.
When you think about John F. Kennedy was a moderate Democrat, would be a conservative Republican by today’s standards.
The last moderate Democrat was Zel Miller.
Will some commies now cross the aisle to the conservative side, same as a looger did for commies.
I fart in his general direction.
scumbag johnny kerry [insider trader extraordinaire] po’d that looger lost, now it’s one less commie...
Tip O’Neil? I remember him as a leftest House Speaker, who cooperated with Reagan only because Carter had almost ruined the country.
I agree. We don't need to adopt the dishonest tactics of the left, but we should emulate their doggedness in pursuing their goals.

And that is the BIG problem. People in a bubble for that long loose comprehension of what our government is. They get busy feathering their own nest and do not give two hoots about the rest of us. They also become enamored with the D.C. culture which lives and breathes on tax payer money and big bucks from lobbyists. It sometimes feels like we are living under a big scam run by people who have never had a real job.
