    No one on their side ever bothered to explain that their demands were not only unrealistic, they're impossible. They are seeking shamrock farting leprechauns.

    The GOP is going to be under serious pressure from these deluded and angry masses to deliver on expectations that simply ignore reality. And it's their own fault for fostering misconceptions and promoting outright lies about the state of the budget, the HIR, taxes and the causes of our economic collapse and prospective recovery.

    I'm thrilled the electorate had the sense to keep the worst of their candidates out of the Senate. It will be interesting however to see how these house members will answer to the mob when they can't deliver on their balanced budget, no tax increases, make jobs happen now by waving a magic wand and rein in the banks while rolling back all financial regulation promises.

      If popular/electable presumed RINO's get dumped at primary in exchange for guaranteed loser candidates future GOP candidates will tend towards Tea Party rather than GOP/RINO. Because the Tea Party has proved that they don't give a damn and will vote down "RINO" GOP'ers even if it means losing the general.
