    The Republican challenger should have EASILY beat Harry Reid, but Sharron Angle LOST!
    Then, O'Donnell. Yes DL is a blue state, but she lost to a self-proclaimed COMMUNIST by 16 points. That is a disgrace!

    Now Little Joey Miller in AK, a worthless candidate that refuses media interviews (I hate candidates that do that), is about to lose to a established candidate, who had to have her name written in. Making her write in her name instead of having it on the ballot was a Shit Hole Glutter Trash Politics!

    You will say Rand Paul! First, Rand is in a very RED state. Second, Rand was running against a far leftist nut! Lastly, it wasn't the tea party that gave him a boost, it was Daddy. Like it or not Ron Paul built up a very very strong following! Rand was able to capitalize on that following!

    Sorry, but if this election proved anything its that Tea Party candidates win primaries but lose big time in general elections!

    You seem to think the winner of a primary race should step aside and let the loser run. Those days are over because of the TEA PARTY. Gone are the days of voting for the lesser of two evils. Voters should vote their conscience and vote what they believe, not vote for someone just because they are told this candidate can win.
    Angle didn't win Nevada. Reid has the backing of the big unions, Hotel workers, casino workers and teachers make up probably 75-80% of those still employed in the state. Angle didn't win but she came closer to beating Reid than any time in his political career.
    Alaska isn't over yet. Miller may have won. Instead of criticize Miller for not dropping out after winning the primary why not criticize Murkowski for not listening to the voters. If anyone screwed up Alaska she's the one that did it.
    The TEA PARTY didn't win every race it backed but by election time even some Dem's were changing their tune and sounding like conservatives. We have made a difference and now that the election is over we start working on 2012. The dum's and repub's will be quite for the next 18 months but the TEA PARTY will be active and preparing to make even a bigger difference in the next election.

    yes... a generic r could have beaten those d's.

    but... just to clarify... he never said he was a commie that was tongue in cheek, no matter how many times the right wants to pretend it wasn't.

    and rand would have been beaten if he had actually talked about what he believes. but apprently, tea party tactic is pretending they don't have to answer to anyone... like angle's rush for the hills after every photo op. and rand's whining after he was confronted with his own positions. the funny thing is that the tea people who lost appear to be the ones hand-picked by palin. that doesn't bode well for the r's in 2012 if the loons get her through the primary process.

    other than that, carry on.

    paladino, anyone? :rofl:

    Actually, the election results and exit polling data shows that the tea party did have a good deal of influence yesterday. There's no way around that that isn't just political spin, and particular races aside.

    Whether that influence will extend beyond this year's elections is another matter.

    True, but I sometimes think electability should be considered also. Rubio was very electable with or with out the tea party!

    During the primary Captain Kirk nearly lost to the neo-conservative Tea Party candidate. Captain Kirk went on to win Obama's old senate seat!

    I guarantee if the Tea Party candidate won, the Gianoulias would have taken the seat by 15-20 points!

    Voting the lesser of two evils is the reason we have the mess in Congress that the TEA PARTY is trying to clean up. Vote for what you feel is right not who the media tells you can win. This election is a start and if we get enough voters thinking for themselves, instead of letting the media tell them who to vote for, we can get our Republic back. The TEA PARTY Tidal Wave is just getting going and it's not going away.
