Worse. I'm thinking Romney Redux.
Looking at the Republican primaries, I saw a few Tea Party upsets, and a whole bunch of Establishment Republicans with narrow victories over badly outspent challengers who had almost zero name recognition. The reason it wasn't worse is because some of them got Dems to cross over.
Look at always-in-the-news Lindsey 'Goober' Graham. Goober won his primary with just 50-something percent of the vote. And he's crowing about it. That's terrible - he had 5 or 6 unknowns that split the opposition vote, and had a bunch of Democrats cross over to vote for him. And he got under 60%. The sitting House Majority leader Eric Cantor lost to a complete unknown who had little money - something like 55-45%. Pathetic. And so it went on down the line.
And there are still a few more primaries and runoffs to come.
The base is not happy with the current Republican Party clown act in DC.
This string of Bush I, Bush I, Dole, Bush II, Bush II, McCain, Romney Big Government Republicans taking the Presidential nomination ends here or there is a good chance it's the end of the Republican Party. No Chris Christy's, no Jeb Bushes, no Mitt Romney's.
Yet by promoting Kevin McCarthy to House Majority Leader, and Steve Scalise to Majority Whip, Boehner and the rest have shown they still don't get it. We are going to have to pull these rats out by the roots. I would love to see the Republicans take the Senate, while at the same time Senate Minority 'Leader' Mitch McConnell loses his re-election this November. I think a lot of Kentucky Republicans just may stay home on election day..
