    For the "vote them all out" and *ahem* tea party members: "Ruh roh..."

    In primaries, anger at D.C. doesn't translate - Decision 2010- msnbc.com

    Notable from the article:

    It's almost like those of us who have been saying "congressional approval rating numbers don't reflect how people feel about their congressperson" were onto something.

    So, I notice there aren't a lot of teabagger gloating threads today.

    MWAHAAHAHAHAHAA!

    Well, if MSNBC say it is so, then so it must be.

    having four challengers and winning is significant?

    That means there are alot of people opposing you, they are just divided on who they want to replace you. That's not a good sign at all.

    Course i think primaries where people have a choice are important.

    Well, if you fact-check the claims re:the primaries they're spot on. But you already did that prolly

    I was hoping more TP candidates would win in the primaries. They are such fringe candidates they have no hope of winning general elections

    It goes against the whole Conservative theory that they're the mainstream and there's no longer room in the party for Moderate Republicans. "Bold colors! No pale pastels!"

    Not sure how primaries are run in your state, but here in Michigan you have to be Republican to run in the Republican primary and Democrat for theirs. Also you have to declare which party you want to vote for. Just libs grasping at straws before the November blood bath.
