No Matter What Happens To Trump, Trumpism Is Here To Stay
Even if we succeed in excising Donald Trump from the GOP, he has drawn a road map for others like him to stoke the same fears and antagonismsRead More »

How sad. Apparently, without the help of NRSC’s crack campaign team, Scott Brown may never have had a chance at victory today. It wasn’t the tea parties, or the grassroots anger at Washington, or Scott Brown’s courage to stand against Obamacare in the bluest of states… No, it was the GOP establishment in Washington that “quietly” engineered this win. You read that right, the same political geniuses that chose Specter over Toomey and Crist over Rubio, are saying Brown couldn’t have done it without them.
Let’s get serious. Here’s a reality check for the NRSC and their desperate attempt to take credit for the people’s uprising in Massachusetts.
The real credit for a possible Brown victory today goes to thousands and thousands of everyday Americans in Massachusetts and across the country who have had it with Washington’s spending and takeovers, people that donated money and volunteered to help on the ground. The NRSC making a last-minute attempt to claim credit because they sent some checks in the last week, money that was a drop in the bucket compared to what the grassroots gave Brown, is laughable and pathetic. This was anything but a party effort. This was an uprising by the people, and a movement that will continue all across this country. And the people will do it without the permission of Washington GOP elites, thank you very much.
P.S. I guess we should thank the NRSC for one thing: staying quiet. They seem to know that the DC GOP brand is in the toilet and vocally attempting to help Brown would have been a disaster. Thanks for staying out of the way Mr. Cornyn. But stop trying to claim the people’s victory as a win for the establishment.
