    Is Rand Paul another Scott Brown? Was Scott Brown really a Tea Party candidate? Rand Paul is a true blue Tea Party candidate.


    the Tea Party candidate in New York lost. The state GOP lost in that race.

    :eusa_whistle:

    DeMint and the Tea Party are pushing the GOP leadership.

    A district that went GOP in 2008, and that had to deal with the Democrat Murtha scandals. If the anti-incumbent nitwits can't take Murtha's seat away from Dems

    Since Mitch McConnell backed Trey Grayson does that mean McConnell is on his way out too?

    Except for one, they were "primaries".

    Critz, longtime aide to Murtha, had 53 percent of the vote with 99 percent of districts reporting. Republican businessman Tim Burns received 44 percent.

    So is Sarah Palin pretty much out of the Tea Party movement now? Yes, she backed Paul, but she's backing Fiorina in CA, McCain in AZ, and she backed Perry in TX, none of which are the tea party favs.

    Is there a real 'Tea Party' yet?

    I'm guessing a lot of GOP'ers hope so. The ubiquitous TV images of Grandma McConnell rambling incoherently can't be helpful.

    Gee, you guys seemed pretty sure there was NOT a tea party on another thread. Now your not so sure? Make up your minds.

    P.S. That 0bama endorsement really helped Spector huh?

    All the big shots in the DNC backed Joe Lieberman in his last primary fight.

    You really need to know when to STFU before you open your mouth. The people who are Democrats in Spector's district knew him well. Democrats never have walked lock step into the voting booth like a bunch of fascists -- unlike the GOP, the Democrats have a history of voting for whom they like, not for whom they are told to vote for.

    The Tea Party Conservatives think the rejection of top down rule is a new thing.
    :lol::lol::lol:


    It is for them :eek:
