Tea Party Guy Wins in Texas

Tea Party favorite Ted Cruz won the runoff to be the GOP Senate nominee in Texas against establishment favorite Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst.

If you’re not familiar with Cruz, let me mention that Sarah Palin endorsed him, and that’s about all you need to know.

Cruz and Dewhurst had the same positions on the issues (as far-right as you can go without falling off the edge), but Cruz articulated those positions in a way more pleasing to the bat-shit crazy contingent’s ears.

Another bad day for sanity in this country.

  1. Yep, and I feel the same way when the left targets Blue Dog Dems. We need more moderates on both sides.

    • I love the Blue Dog Dems.

      • Me, too. If I become a multi-gazillionaire, I plan to create some type of group that would distribute money and support to moderates on both sides. How awesome would that be? Or maybe there’s some kind of group like that already out there, but the goal would be to shepherd through the nasty primaries moderates who have a spine and who are willing to work across the aisle.
