A Political Party In Total Disarray

Remember all those stories touting the death of the Republican party after the Democrats swept into power first in the 2006 elections in which they took over Congress and installed Pelosi and Reid as their leaders and then in the 2008 elections in which they also gained control of the executive branch? That would be the presidency for those of you with a government education.

Well it seems the real party in disarray and suffering the most from voter backlash against the big political machine is the Democrats. How else to explain this?
An unemployed military veteran who raised no funds and put up no campaign website shocked South Carolina's Democratic Party leadership by capturing the nomination Tuesday to face Republican U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint in November.

With nearly all precincts reporting, Alvin Greene, 32, commanded 59 percent of the vote against 41 percent for former four-term state lawmaker Vic Rawl, 64, who had raised about $186,000 and had to abruptly scrap a late-week fundraiser for the fall.

Just like everybody else I know nothing about this guy. The powers that be in the Democrat political machine offer up the lame excuse that voters may have just voted based on the alphabetic order of the candidates on the ballot.

Look I accuse Democrats all the time of merely voting for the guy with a (D) behind the name because it is the highest grade they got in school, but this is carrying that a little too far. So basically what the Dems are saying is that any name out of the phone book can defeat their chosen nominee. While they are searching for reasons why they are losing elections, and constantly claiming that it is because they are not doing a good enough job of getting their message out, it appears the opposite is true. The message has been delivered and most Americans don't like it.

Maybe these stories of a Democrat blood bath in November aren't as far fetched as I thought.
