While everyone has been arguing about the Mosque in NYC, Obama's religious faith, Beck's latest sphiel, and the Koran, we all seem to have forgotten that today in a number of states, elections were going on. And while fairly nominal, it was the first real test of the Tea "Party" (I use the word lightly and per what the Press is giving them; they aren't a recognized party). With that... McCain Wins Renomination; Novice Shines in Florida Bit of a problem with the AP's article, though. Nevada, Colorado, and Utah didn't have any elections today, and according to the website for WAVE (local TV station) in Louisville, none of the precincts have reported in. It also says a lot about Palin's clout in Alaska. One commenter mentioned that in the beginning, they supported the Tea 'Party', but because the ads they took out were mean-spirited and outright nasty, because they couldn't be anything positive, he dropped them and voted for Murkowski, who won. So, if her 'endorsed' candidate can't even win for her in her home state, what chance would she have outside of it? Either way, I'll agree that there is a lot of enthusiasm with the Reds right now provided by the teabaggers, but if they don't get it together, their divisiveness may be their undoing. BL.
