    Who are the NERD fund donors Mr Snyder?

    Raise the curtain.

    The lameness is strong in this one...

    Apparently the "establishment" mental disorder affects those in college as well.

    Nathan Inks, chair for the Central Michigan University College Republicans, wrote a column published today in Central Michigan Life about how the GOP is supposedly going "to take what should be a phenomenal year electorally and start ruining races one by one."

    More Below

    In the column, Inks brings out his contradictory thought process for all to see. In his discussion of the Alaska primary, he states:

    Murkowski announced that she would run as a write-in candidate, putting Miller in jeopardy of holding the Republican seat. For the good of the party, Murkowski should drop out and endorse Miller.

    Yet when talking about the Delaware primary:
    If O'Donnell could win in November, I would have whole-heartedly backed her in the primary, but voting for the conservative does the GOP no good if that candidate does not end up getting seated in the Senate.

    Maybe homeboy should take a dose of his own medicine and advocate the endorsement of O'Donnell instead of pulling an NRSC.

    Apparently a RINO is also better than a leftist that actually calls themselves what they are:

    A moderate Republican who, according to the American Conservative Union, votes conservative 52.49 percent of the time is better than a hardcore liberal such as Coons.

    No it's not, especially when that RINO is going to make the GOP look like "donkey" by supporting leftist/big government initiatives, like, oh, I don't know, TARP? Maybe Cap and trade? But hey, I guess it's ok so long as the candidate has an (R) after their name. Silly me.

    But the second to last paragraph, specifically the first sentence, makes me question Inks' thought processes:

    Luckily, it does not appear that Republicans were going to take control of the Senate anyway,

    .... Luckily? Maybe my vision or mind is going already at 25, but I thought I just saw Inks say that he thinks it's good that it doesn't appear republicans are going to take control of the Senate.

    Of course how dare I question the wisdom of the establishment.

    Maybe the CMU College Republicans should become the Jugendbund der NRSC.

    Voting on principle is honorable, but in America's two-party system, it can prove to be impractical at times, and electability of candidates must be taken into account.

    Spoken like a young Newt Inks, err, Nathan Rove, err, dipsh!t.

    This proves many 'establishment' types in the GOP (5.00 / 1) (#2)

    .... Still don't get it.

    If we are going to get back to conservative principles, we need to nominate and elect conservative candidates. Not diet democrats.

    This can't be a one election cycle event.

    If we keep the pressure on. I'm sure many R's will be looking over their shoulders when casting votes in then next Congress

    First, you're reading too much into that second to last paragraph.  When I used the word "luckily" it was in the context of the Delaware race only.  I would love nothing more than for the GOP to take the majority.  I was merely stating that it's lucky for us that Delaware didn't put us in jeopardy of losing the chance for that majority.

    Second, I wholeheartedly endorse O'Donnell, and hope she wins; however, I am predicting that she won't, and that if we would have nominated Castle, he would have won.

    Third, yes, Castle has voted with liberals on some issues; however, he voted with conservatives on quite a few things: opposing Obamacare, support of the border fence, not expanding estate taxes, and he voted to repeal TARP.

    That doesn't mean he's a great politician who I love, it just means that I would rather have him than Coons who takes the liberal stance on all of those issues.

    ...page for Thursday is even more interesting.  The editor does one of those "student in the street" items where several kids are asked if they like the idea of the government setting up a free, nationwide wi-fi system.  All thought it was a cool idea... not one worried about who was going to pay for it.
