9. The Knives Are Already Out...

Bishop Willard, just like Gramps McCain, won their nominations by default...the unhinged couldn't fall in love with one wingnut candidate or another. They all but canibalized their own in the primaries that left Shitt Onme as the only candidate standing and it's been a shotgun marriage ever since.

Mittens represents the party elite...the big money that has long ruled the party...exploiting the fundies, racists and other far right groups for their votes. That plan went awry with the teabagger "movement"...instead of astroturfing a new generation of wingnuts, they created crabgrass all around the party and have overgrown the elite...much to their chagrin. The Todd Akin mess is a textbook situation...the elite want him gone but the teabaggers have stood behind him.

Many are already jetisoning Willard as....as you say...not being "conservative" enough and already blame the "elite" for the ruin of the party...blowing an election they were sure could be won. Doesn't everyone hate the "colored fella"? The Bishop hasn't helped his case by running such an inept campaign. Thus this blame game will be simple...Willard will become the Michael Dukakis of the rushpublican party...quickly forgotten.

The real fun is what happens down ticket. If the rushpublicans fail to take the Senate and by some chance lose the House...the blood will really flow and we can sit back and enjoy a couple months of some major right wing angst and finger pointing. But to discount them is too soon...as they still will control key state governments and their crusades to shove ALEC type legislation on the state and local level will continue...
