I really don't know what to make of yesterday's primaries as they relate to the upcoming election in November, but at least Arlen Specter will not be part of it. That is a good thing, regardless of what happens. I can only hope (as well as pray) that John McCain suffers a similar fate.
I look at yesterday as being somewhat of a mixed bag, really. The two bright spots were the aforementioned Specter defeat, and the impressive win Rand Paul enjoyed in Kentucky.
Paul, a libertarian, basically ran on a conservative "stop the spending" platform, and beat his RNC-backed opponent by an eye-opening twenty-four points. I hope the vapid leadership at the RNC put down the champagne and caviar long enough to take notice.
Of course, the dems retained Jackass Murtha's seat in the 12th District of Pennsylvania, but I wouldn't read too much into that given the gerrymandered, lop-sided makeup of the electorate there.
I have been truly enjoying watching the State Controlled Media (SCM) contort itself into pretzels trying to convince us that this is all due to "voter anger" and "anti-incumbent" fever, in an effort to deflect attention away from the real issue that has people steamed - Barrack Hussein Obama and his hideous freedom and nation-destroying Marxist agenda.
The SCM is right about one thing - incumbents that have voted with the Comrade Chairman are in trouble, be they dems or repubs.
The question is, are enough of them in trouble to matter come November? I guess we'll see what we'll see.
I think next November is the election that will make or break America as it was founded.
And even if it goes they way I hope it will, it will only be the beginning of the real battle ahead, as it will not be enough to just slow or even stop Obama's rapidly moving Marxist coup, it must be reversed.
