Notes On The Primary

The Tea Party took some serious hits in the Tuesday primary — and their losses were self-inflicted.

Not necessarily from this set of candidates, but from the legacy of idiot candidates they have put forward in previous election cycles. The Tea Party still serves to keep the “Establishment” Republicans from straying too far into the Washington Syndrome morass, but getting elected is getting much harder.

Conservatism is a concept that should not be personality dependent, so if establishment or activist carry the message is not something about which is really important — Barry Goldwater and Ronald Reagan were both “Establishment” Republicans.
