The GOP holds the House because of the Tea Party surge of 2010. But in his arrogance, Mitch McConnell assumes that it can take the Senate this year with no help from its own conservative base, due to public rage over ObamaCare, NSA spying, politicization of the IRS, high unemployment, the decline of America’s position in the world, and the rest of the stinking stew that was marketed as Hope & Change:
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell vowed any tea party candidates challenging establishment Republicans in the 2014 midterm elections would not just fail — but fail miserably.
“I think we are going to crush them everywhere,” he said, The New York Times reported, “I don’t think they are going to have a single nominee anywhere in the country.”
Normally Republicans pretend to be conservatives or at least not to hate conservatives until after the votes are counted. If they retake the Senate while openly opposing the Tea Party, imagine how little support conservative positions will receive.
Amnesty for illegal aliens will be high on the agenda. An influx of tens of millions of peasants from the Third World will all but kill off the Republican wing of the Democrat Party that McConnell represents. But at least he won’t have to feel threatened by the Tea Party, after the demographic shift relegates everyone but socialists to regional status.
In the meantime, Kentuckians are urged to support McConnell’s primary challenger Matt Bevin.
