Rand Paul wins by over 59% of the vote in Kentucky

This will have ramifications. As I told someone tonight, “Will he follow thru on his teabagger promises?” Remember, Obama used the fringe left to get himself elected then forgot about them after he took office (That’s okay, Steve got a job suckering the ‘Good People’ of Sioux Falls into voting for Huether (you know, the guy with the gay agenda – Mike, not Steve). Will Rand remember the teabaggers?

In the first race called Tuesday night, conservative insurgent Rand Paul — son of former GOP presidential candidate and Texas Rep. Ron Paul — defeated Secretary of State Trey Grayson in a Republican primary fight for the seat held by retiring GOP Sen. Jim Bunning.

Big dill. The republicants are becoming the repugnants.

Both of the candidates in the KY democratic party primary received far more votes than did Paul. Paul’s toast.

Fringe left……surely you are joking. I wish there was a fringe left, nothing compares to the fringe right. Those guys have cornered the market on fringe.

Helga- I agree, the fringe right is wacko. I love the fringe left though, they are the reason I am no longer a Democrat. The Democratic party has no true liberals in it anymore. I think Obama tricked the ‘real’ liberals into believing he would end the wars and promote equality laws. He hasn’t. He also promised a public option. No dice. Whether you are fringe left, or fringe right, the smartest thing to do is to register Indy and promote Indy candidates who don’t embrace party politics.

John2, you are probably right.

Bullshit. The fringe Left is alive and well and populates a significant portion of DC. Particularly Obama himself and his Czar-laden cabinet.

The issue is, like Obama they can’t be honest about being Liberal. Focus groups have shown them that label doesn’t attract anyone from the Center. People still claim “conservative” credentials, even when they have none to speak of. Jimmy Carter and George McGovern were the last of the proud Liberals, and their electoral success is why the rest of them ditched the name, just not the philosophy that it entails.

So who are the fringe liberals that compare to Newt, DeMint, McConnell, Kyle,Inhofe, Boehner, Sessions, Jean Schmidt, Bachmann, just to name a few. It is hard to top the fringe repugs.
I would suggest to you Sy that the real question is what has happened to the moderate republicans? They are gone. Alan Simpson asked that question several years ago. He wondered what happened to the Cheney he served with in congress. The Cheney now is a right wing nut case.

Like I said; they are at the highest levels of the Obama Admin, Congress and the Judiciary. Pelosi, Reid, Obama, Hoyer, Clinton, Mrs. Obama, Emanuel, Biden, Sotomayor, Kagen, Axelrod et al. Pick any cabinet member or czar and show me moderation. Van Jones? Are you kidding me?

The Republicans put a moderate on the ballot in ’08, with McCain’s stance on Immigration, Campaign Finance and Health Care as exhibit’s A,B & C. The last significant moderate in the Democratic Party was Lieberman. He was selected to balance Gore’s Liberalism the same way Palin was selected to balance McCain’s. Joe supported the Iraq war in doing so was kneecapped to the point of running as an Indy.

Keep drinking that Kool-Aid Sy.

Take a peek at the PA-12 race Helga, that district is 2 to 1 Dem to Rep. and the Dem won only by sounding like Rush Limbaugh.

Had he run as an Obamaesque Liberal where there’s no such thing as too much Goverment he’d be filing for unemployment bene’s just like Arlen Sphincter.

Obama is a liberal like I’m a 65 year old black woman.
