You gotta be kidding me

Well, I guess the GOP didn't really learn the lesson we hoped they would from this election.

Trent Lott Wins Back Leadership Slot

Because, what better way to mend fences with a disillusioned base than to select someone who's couldn't give a fig about a lot of the base's concerns?

So much for pork/earmark reform, border control, "amnesty" and other concerns, because, frankly, he's "getting damn tired of hearing from them".

Way to give a damn about your base.


Looks like a pretty universal reaction at this point.

But at least they're electing new blood in the House leadership.

Okay maybe not.

Well, I kind of look forward to being the minority party for 10 or 12 years.

Francase, I know everyone's tired of hearing it, but as just about everything I predicted comes true and then some, I can't say it enough: told ya so! ;)

C'mon now. Long past due to go independent. The GOP is no longer a proper home for conservatives. Been that way for years now.

The problem with the leadership isn't that it's not conservative - McConnell in the Senate, and even Lott, and Boehner and Blunt in the House, are all pretty conservative. The problem is all these guys represent the old guard. It would be nice to see some new blood, especially Pence and Shadegg.
