4. Teahadist don't have souls

Spending all their time looking for one would be a safe occupation for them and keep them from focusing on how to destroy the american economy even worse now that Obama has another 4 years in the WH.

5. We need to help them spread the idea that they lost because their candidate wasn't far enough

to the right, and they need an even more pure "republican".

11. Yeah, 'cause we were willing to let that one out.

 

You know I found that animal on my land, right? Totally insane and wild. A Republican.

You know I love all the folks on DU, but you just done gone too far.

6. Sold out.

If there's an unmortgaged soul left in the GOP, it's probably second-hand.

7. Who Would Have Thought That Dems Would Pick Up 2 Senate Seats

Given the extremely tough landscape they faced.

Well, with the help of Realclearpolitics and some reading between the lines in Montana and North Dakota (where I differed from Realclearpolitics), I got every Senate race right. While this isn't an exact prediction from October 25th it shows me alerting that Montana and North Dakota, which nobody was really paying attention to where very much in play. http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1014&pid=280223

The race I was most anxious about was actually Wisconsin where I was unsure whether to believe the polls considering an openly gay person was running. Wisconsin made me proud.

Redistricting (Gerrymandering) saved Republicans in the House but demographic changes could come back and haunt Republicans in future elections.

8. WE might call what they do "soul searching," but I seriously doubt they call it that.

The Republican strategy is more like strategizing a chronology of attack points and manipulations of media framing. I wouldn't even characterize them as the types to soul search even in church. I could quote some strategies I've read on their sites today as examples, even. But let's not kid ourselves.
