    No More ‘Lesser of Two Evils’
    Jewish World Review, by Arnold Ahlert

    Original Article


    "I don't know which is more amusing: Democrats assuming that any candidate with Tea Party backing is certifiable, or Republicans upset with the idea that RINOs are slowly becoming an endangered species within their own party. One thing is certain: the movement both sides are trying to discredit is revealing what's really in play come November. Ordinary Americans, the very same folks who engender the bipartisan contempt of Beltway insiders, have decided that one of the oldest pieces of conventional wisdom with respect to voting — as in "choosing the lesser of two evils" — doesn't cut it anymore.............."

    Reality Check:

    If anything 2010 is a testament to the power of unlimited incumbency in Congress. 98% of all incumbents seeking reelection have won so far.

    That the "lesser of two evils" voting behaviour in America is over is a bit far fetched. All the tea party is is one new group of buffoons trying to usurp one party from another group of buffoons, so that they can challenge the other party... of buffoons.
