  •  I think they would have voted anyway. They (8+ / 0-)

    ALWAYS do.  One thing the GOP has is electoral turnout.  The harder right they are they more they vote it seems.  Hate is a strong motivator.

      2006 was one counterexample.  And I suspect that many of them saw that Cooch was going to lose and may well have stayed home, but saw the rally of McAuliffe with Obama and they showed up in droves.

      Don't call these racist thugs the tea party, they are *teabaggers*! Please don't insult the original Tea Party as they were patriots. Call them TeaBaggers!

    •  Hate and desperation. The religious right (0+ / 0-)

      see things beginning to slip away from them. They will be getting out the vote from here on out. We need to be prepared for them.

      You can't make this stuff up.
