    Joe Schwarz, a liberal Republican from Michigan, lost his primary yesterday. Freakin' awesome. The Club for Growth, an anti-pork organization I belong to, was one of the main groups leading the charge against Schwarz. The victor, Tim Walberg, is a Pat Toomey-type Republican: tough on pork, socially conservative. Just as Lieberman's victory moved the Dems further left, this moves the GOP (thankfully) further right.

    :thup: Great news! Maybe this signals people have had enough of liberal republicans and that the party will be shifting back to the right.
