Response to arely staircase (Original post)

4. According to a long-time GOP activist who's a friend, the teabaggers have

managed to take over everything to the detriment of normal Republicans like him. It has pissed off quite a few Pubs, who may not turn out to vote or may vote 3rd party (the libertarian).

Cooch, Jackson and Obenshain are all so far right that they scare even the Republicans.

Obama won here twice because every liberal and every black person came out to vote. That doesn't mean that VA is turning purple, though. If the GOP had had the common sense to run a less rabid ticket Nov 5, we'd have a Pub gov, lt gov, and AG Nov 6. But they have miscalculated the exact teabagginess of their whole Republican base, and decided to push for as far right as possible.
