Apparently Karl Rove sees the handwriting on the wall and is going to try and move the Republican party back towards the center and away from the right wing fundamentalists core.

NY Times reports yesterday: "The Karl Rove-backed American Crossroads organization is creating the Conservative Victory Project, to counter the influence of groups like Club for Growth and the Senate Conservatives Fund. Its mission: to spend money in GOP primaries to make sure that candidates like Todd Akin, Richard Mourdock, Sharron Angle, and Christine O’Donnell don’t become the nominees for key Senate contests.

“In effect, the establishment is taking steps to fight back against Tea Party groups and other conservative organizations that have wielded significant influence in backing candidates who ultimately lost seats to Democrats in the general election,” the Times said, adding that the Conservative Victory Project’s first effort could be in Iowa, where conservative Rep. Steve King is mulling a Senate bid".

For once, I wish old Karl well in this endeavor, which I have been advocating for a long while.

It's about time that the Republicans became respectable and stopped supporting all of these religious nuts. They might even get my vote if they move far enough in the moderate direction.

The above statement could be read more than one way. If they are fighting back against Tea Party groups that represent the "religious nuts" then I would say it is a good thing. On the other hand, if they are against the Tea Party in general I would say it is not.

Good point Bill, and I agree.  The Tea Party's focus on reducing the national debt is a good thing.  .

...How did the Tea Party lose their way and back some of these kooks like "Christine (I am not a witch) O'Donnell best known for her stances against abortion, homosexuality, pre-marital sex, and masturbation.?"
