It's clear this morning the new talking point is that the Tea Party has ruined the Republican opportunity to take over congress during the midterm election. Joe Scarborough is even on board with the new tactic. Joe Scarborough acts as if he's an anti-establishment rebel, but I think Mika has turned him -- he sounds like a stuffed-shirt, just like Rove sounded last night. A new alliance between liberals and statist Republicans is forming to fight the Tea Party -- it's not unlike the reactionary forces at the end of the 19th centery which fought to subjugate the free market.
There has always been statist force in America committed to a strong, powerful State, and they react when the State is threatened by limitations. What's so telling about this reaction is how the Republican guard has moved to strike down the limited government movement. Christine O'Donnell's win last night has created a panic in the political class. The Republicans of Delaware made a decision who they want as a senator, and the faux-elite of the Republican Party are mad because they aren't in control of who wins. I think a message has been sent -- elections are for the people to vote for representatives -- Delaware chose O'Donnell to run as a Republican -- the useful idiots in the Republican Party had better get onboard, or they will ruin the Republican opportunity for victory.
