MEMBER DIARY

Primaries Loom Large.

Ten states states hold primary elections today, in addition to the runoff in Arkansas and a Republican Congressional special in Georgia. DeMarxists in Congress are by no means eager to press for Obama’s agenda. A lot of these folks must know by now that they are toast. Voters are in a mood to punish incumbents who they see as betraying the people’s trust by voting in favor of the health care legislation.

Blanche Lincoln campaigning in her home town.

Blanche Lincoln comes to mind. She’d been playing both ends of the deck for so long that when the health care vote came up she was so far out of touch with her constituency that she didn’t recognize that fully 70% of the people of Arkansas were dead set against the Obama stealth care fraud. If Lincoln did realize that the issue was that volcanic and voted for it anyway, she should be removed from office for being as dumb as a box of rocks, which is just exactly what is going to happen today.

Across the country, from coast to coast, this preliminary to the main event in November has both parties watching very carefully, even as the various candidates campaign down to the wire for today’s elections. Conservative Republicans are running strongly across the country. The influence of the Conservative Patriot movements and the Tea Partiers cannot be underestimated here, as the establishment Republicans discovered to their dismay and embarrassment that instead of ‘instilling’ party discipline on those unsophisticated rubes, they were not only ignored but they were pulled ignominiously along behind Americans that were sick to death of government business-as-usual, regardless of what side of the aisle it came from.

All indications are that Democrat incumbents will take a bath today. I sincerely hope so. It’ll be just that many fewer we have to beat in November. The message is clear. America has just about had it with Obama’s vision for America.
