Your article makes a lot of unsupported claims which I am sure is mana to the ears of Republican/Tea Party devotees. But that does not make the claims true.
Let me remind you of New York 21, a solidly Republican district recently went to a Democrat. And the Democrat campainged on all the issues listed as a liability for Democrats.
And let me remind you that Senator Reid (Democrat) was supposed to be a slam dunk looser in the last election. Despite Reid's unpopularity, Reid retained his senate seat. Why? Because Republicans ran one of those Tea Party extremists against him, Sharon Angle. The beauty of Bachmann and Perry is that Democrats don't have to paint them as anything. They do it well themselves. If the Republican debate was any indication last night, I don't think Dems have much to worry about. There were only to candidates on the floor who actually answered questions directed at them. And neither of them has a snowball's chance in Hell of attaining the nomination. I just love the way Bachmann and Perry act like a message recorder - providing the standard talking point regardless of the question asked.
Personally, I do hope you guys nominate Perry or Bachmann. Last presidential election cycle you, limbaugh and company advocated that Republicans should vote in the Democrat primaries for the weakest Democrat. I may return the favor this cycle by voting for someone like Bachmann or Perry.

The insanity of it allOriginally Posted by Joepistole
Everything points toward it, and a Perry nomination (the more likely) would only demonstrate the point. The risk is that Obama can be thumbscrewed like he has been, because the economic conservative outlook can only successfully be delivered by the alleged liberal in the room; coming from anyone else, it is subject to the usual litany of conspiracy theories.
It's a conspiracy theory wrapped in a conspiracy theory zipped neatly inside a dirty down vest.
We have to start entertaining the possibility that the Tea Party really is that stupid.

Meanwhile, the Republicans seem poised to make a shocking upset pickup in New York:
Republican Bob Turner holds a six-point lead in next week's special election to replace disgraced former Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y., according to a new Siena College poll released early Friday that shows voters in the overwhelmingly Democratic district are poised to deliver a stinging rebuke to President Obama and his party.
Turner leads Democratic Assemblyman David Weprin in the poll, 50 percent to 44 percent. Six percent of likely voters in the Sept. 13th election are undecided.

From my perspective, if a Republican wins, it matters little which Republican wins. They will all be exceptionally disasterous for the country. From a practical point of view there is no difference between a Bachmann, a Perry or a Romney. Given the positions they must take to get the nomination, they will never be able to govern should they attain the office of POTUS. So if any Republican wins, I will be bundled up and prepared for the second coming.
What is clear is that this election cycle is going to be very expensive for Republicans. They have been out spending Democrats by several fold only to take serious losses in Wisconsin and New York. And in this particular election the Republican is spending 4 times as much at the Democrat.
Time will tell. But if I were you, I would not count my chickens before the eggs hatch.
