Haya, it's not just a mid-America thing. Last time around the tea party gave away seats in Alaska, Nevada and Maryland.
No kidding. Hopefully the lesson the Republicans learn tomorrow is that a move back to the centre is in their self-interests.

No. They'll say that Romney was a moderate just like McCain, and that they need a far right candidate next time. Watch.

The brain dead become very bold when they take their altered reality to be the same as other people's.

They need to be destroyed mercilessly and without compromise because that's how they play. A move back to the center would just be a precursor for a move back to the right. The irrational will always pose a threat unless they have no chance to get their hands on the one ring.

IF rommney loses tomorrow . Fat chance since media controls many of the polls being taken . If Romney loses . THE GOP is over . The new unity party will instead takes its place . Neo-cons and progressives will have to go back to the demon party they sprang from .

When Obama wins, it will be completely obvious that it is the fault of the Tea Party and fundamental rejection of them in this country.

Of course, none of them will ever believe that.

Hehehe, I love your sense of the obvious. What is obvious is totally denied by the Tea Party. They are demented. angry little hornets.

Being a dimocrat in Indiana surrounded by so many red turkeys is certainly never pleasant. But I still have a somewhat gallows humor watching Indiana 2012 GOP political adds.

As (1) The GOP rails ever hyperspastic against the 2012 Reid Pelosi agenda, while conveniently forgetting its now the Reid Weeping John Boehneir gridlock agenda since 2010.
(2) Certain wags now speculate on no real evidence if HONEY BOO BOO will be the keynote speaker at the 2016 Republican convention. While that may be a possible outcome, I prefer to point out a far more certain out come, is in the fact that BIG BIRD has zero chance of being the keynote speaker at the 2016 GOP convention.
