Conservative bloggers unhappy with Senate results

“Conservatives must start by confronting the fact that the 2012 election was a historic victory for the American Left, probably its greatest since 1936,” wrote Jeffrey Bell at National Review’s “The Corner” blog. He added later, “Particularly galling for conservatives is the defeat of every Republican challenger for the U. S. Senate, coupled with apparent Democratic victories in 25 of a possible 33 races.

7. Yup.

Come Senators, Congressmen, please heed the call.
Don't stand in the doorway, don't block of the hall,
For he who gets hurt will be he who has stalled.
There's a battle outside and it's raging.
It will soon shake your windows and rattle your walls,
For the times they are a-changin'.

8. Perfect.

2. It's their own damned fault.

They let the Teabag nutjobs gain control of their party and now they can only win in rural areas.

3. But the blame game is already underway.

“If only those extremist Tea Parties hadn’t forced unelectable fringe candidates on us like Scott Brown,” prominent Texas conservative Josh Treviño snarked on Twitter, a jab at those blaming conservative elements of the party for pushing candidates that struggled in general elections.

4. Reality sucks. According to Lindsay Graham...

"If we lose, it's because of demographics."

No shit, Graham.

5. Graham is another crook

there's a reason he dropped out of his presidential run,
and that reason is payoffs.

6. And if it wasn't for gerrymandered districts..

... Democrats would have come very close to taking the House back too.

Ugh, I am so angry at the apathy of key voting blocs in the 2010 election. I don't even think they understand the consequences of their actions.
