If we can't sacrifice a virgin (like we could find one in Washington), any incumbent will do.
Yesterday's election results are an indicator of things to come in November. Here's a roundup of some of the carnage:
Rand Paul, son of Texas Congressman Ron Paul, won the Republican primary in Kentucky in a flexing of Tea Party muscle. His opponent, Secretary of State Trey Grayson, was hand-picked by the GOP and had the backing of a few prominent Republicans whom you may have heard of before, namely Mitch McConnell and some dude named Dick Cheney.
Arkansas incumbent Democrat Blanche Lincoln is forced into a runoff with Lt. Governor Bill Halter. Halter's running to the left of Lincoln, as if that were possible, and is funded by far-left radical/antiChrist billionaire George Soros.
Good news, bad news - the vacant seat created by the death of traitor John Murtha was won by former Murtha aide Mark Critz, another Democrat. The good news is he has to defend his seat again in November. This win was sorta predictable according to those in the know up there.
And in a harbinger of what's to come for Charlie Crist, Snarlin' Arlen Spector was defeated in the Democrat primary by Rep. Joe Sestak, who now faces Pat Toomey in the general election in November. Toomey is ahead in the polls. Specter, you may remember, switched parties in a desperate attempt to save his political bacon last year. He's a long-time RINO who voted with the Dems more often than not. He will not be missed.
We're just getting warmed up. This Novembers' election will be one of the most important mid-terms in recent history. America has had enough of HopenChange and is looking to stop the hard tack to the left that Obama has taken the country against its will. This blog looks forward to a major reorientation in Congress if not outright taking back the House. Should this occur, Obama will be a lame duck until he's thrown out in 2012. Gridlock will become the nations' best friend in the mean time.
Not only does November have the potential of repeating the Republican victory in 1994, it may set back the cause of "progressivism" in American politics for a generation, a very good thing. It hasn't taken long for the effects of that wretched abortion to ruin the country, and it's not too late to correct the damage and return us to the course our Founding Fathers set over 200 years ago: a course set by the free individual citizen, not some out-of-touch elitist in Washington.
Remember, anything the government has done, the government can undo.
