Small doings on Tuesday with some elections. The Republicans won a couple of governor spots while the Democrats won a couple of House seats. Which was more important?
As much as I hate to agree with the idiots over at DailyKos, I think that the Democrats came out bigger nationally, at least in the short term.
As far as I'm concerned, Corzine losing in New Jersey wasn't terribly surprising. I think that results were more anti-Corzine than it was pro-Republican. And time will tell whether Chris Christie will actually be conservative (my immediate guess is no).
As for Virginia, come on, it's...Virginia. We should be whuppin' ass in Virginia. The fact that the Democrats have done as well as they have kinda scary.
But these are mostly local issues. Governors don't really have any power to influence national aspects. But the House of Representatives does.
I think there was a seat in California that was won by Democrats...no shocker there. From what I understand, Democrats heavily outnumbered Republicans in that district and it traditionally sends the former to represent them.
NY-23, however, is a much different story. Once again, the RINOs decided that they're going to suck Democrat balls rather than even try to reconciliate with conservatives. That race made me sick because I really do think Hoffman should have been the winner there, particularly since about 5% voted for Scozzafava anyway. But then, that's the RINOs for you. If they don't get their way, they just vote Democrat (funny how everyone always portrays us conservatives as being narrow-minded). Congrads RINOS, you just added another "yes" vote to radical health care.
I mean, with "friends" like the Scuzzy backers, the Maine sisters and a host of other "let's toss salad the Democrats" RINOs, who needs enemies? Seriously, why don't the RINOs just slap a fucking D next to their name and be done with it? It's obvious that you guys agree very much with Democrats, so just take the next logical step and switch parties. And yes, I'm not afraid to say that I want to see the Republican purified a bit. If purified means getting rid of backstabbers and Meghan "like oh my god" McCain twits, is that necessarily a bad thing?
Purify the party and improve on the message (and yes it needs improving) or at the very least make it clearer. In the long term we'll be better for it.
