pronoun trouble

4 races yesterday. In one of them, a Tea-partier beat out the mainstream GOP candidate. In another, the Tea Partier tied. Another race had a former GOPper loosing to an actual Democrat. And in a fourth, the Democrat won a district that was anti-Obama two years ago. The message that the MSM seems to get from this? That the mood amongst voters is "anti-Washington establishment". It doesnt seem to occur to them that it might instead be a mood that is anti-Republican establishment.

Or at least not one that the gatekeepers of the news are willing to admit.

Talking Points Memo came up with the same conclusion, so it's safe to say that the Beltway Bobbleheads are still in liberal-denial (as in, politics is only about conservatives, "moderates," and occasionally "upset Americans who organize," but liberals are just inconsequential complainers.

I'm glad that the Tea Party loons are besting GOP picks because that means when it comes to elections, the Tea Party monsters will alienate GOP voters of a traditional bent and those just centre-right.
