Center Right? Who Knew?

So, on All Things Considered tonight, the head of Club for Growth crowed about their impact on the NY-23 election. Radicalizing the GOP is their game and he is sure that the country continues to be center-right and receptive to their message.


It sure would have been nice if Robert Seigal had bothered to notice that the anti-tax message seems to be falling on deaf ears and challenge Mr. Chocola with some facts. Perhaps their victory in purging the moderate Republican isn't such good news after all.

I have noticed that Robert Seigal has a profile on linkedin :) but I guess it is not the same Robert Seigal in fact.

I'd rather look at Ca-10. What happened there? A nobody named David Harmer got 42% of the vote against an elected Lt Governor for the honor of filling Ms Tausher's seat and shoes. Obama carried the district by 30 points. This sitting Lt. Governor could only win by 10, with the Speaker's seat just next door...

So Mary, what's fund raising for? I mean what's that $3.5 million sponsor progressive against some "blue dogs" I hear. Republicans didn't have a primary in NY-23. They chose somebody folks, Dede couldn't win on her own. Perhaps a week earlier Sarah.

I think Mark Shields got it right on this one: the overall vote (as opposed to the few races the main-stream media chose to report on, which favored the Republicans) is a referendum on the status quo. People are unhappy with the current state of affairs, and we'd all like the politicians, of whatever party, to actually do something about it.

I've seen that profile as well, but after much research it's not the same one. I heard he has a profile on facebook, however.

I don't agree much with Robert Siegel, This is kind of crazy!
