    Does the election in NY mean that the Republicans will look in their party and realize that right wing loons such as Palin, Beck and Rush are doing serious damage?

    Or does it mean that the right wing loons will become more shrill?

    When and if the Republicans inspect their party for damage, who will do the assessment? There seems to be no national leadership of the Republican party. There further seems to be no consolidating national figure for the Republicans.

    My tip to the GOP: take the next six months and draw up a national game plan just like you did in 1994. Come up with a new Contract with America. Show some effort and develop a message that isn't just "NO!".

    With the Contract for America, house leadership nationalized mid term elections to their great benefit. Turning loose the dogs of "NO!" will allow Republicans to reap the whirlwind.

    IMHO, until the GOP accepts the fact that their party is severely fractured, they will not distance themselves from the likes of the Palins, Becks and Rushes of the world. In their minds, they can be both far right and moderate at the same time. We will have to wait and see what the people think in the mid-terms I guess.

    I hope both parties improve the quality of their candidates and their endorsers. That's what would be best for all of us and best for America. But, as we see, team sport mentality is all too common.

    Go Team! :rolleyes:

    "Rabid Right?" Sounds like a pretty loaded question to me. Way too much Troll in this post. :(

    This is completely accurate and I have never understood why. America was founded on individual liberties and the rights to think and speak for ourselves. At what point did the average American voter sell themselves out to the Republican and Democratic parties?

    Nothing wrong with teaparties or marchs on DC. Of course liberals like to believe its just the crazy right wing of the GOP. Kinda funny, all the marchs I saw included Dems, Reps and Independents if all the newscasters were to be believed. Just good ol'Americans exercising their civil rights to protest and try to save some of their hard earned money. Don't worry, as much as the liberals bitch about the right wing of the GOP, their left wiing does the exact same thing. Of course its not covered by our oh so great news media in quite the same way.

    As for the GOP, they need to get it together and give the Dems a run for their money in 2010. I'm an Independent myself and alreay know who I will be voting for and it sure ain't gonna be anyone who supports that wingnut in the whithouse and his looney agenda. Guaranteed.
