So after the 2012 election demonstrated that Karl Rove's "America is Center-Right" mantra was simply wrong, the used-to-be Fox News contributor has now decided that at least the Republican Party will still be Center-Right.  And to make this happen he needs to get rid of the Real-Right of the Republican Party, namely, the Tea Party.  So now his Super-Pac Crossroads is going to start spending money not on defeating Democrats, but supporting Republicans who face primary challanges from the right!
 The new group is called the Conservative Victory Project, even though its efforts will be aimed at derailing the political ambitions of individuals who, if nothing else, consider themselves to be the true conservatives.
But now that the Center-Right favorite Scott Brown has said that he's bailing out of the Massachusetts Senate race, all of a sudden one or two Tea Partry idiots winning primaries and thus handing the Democrats a couple of more seats and guess what?  The Senate goes back to being 65-55 Center-Left, and there goes the country.  Could you ever imagine Republicans raising money to defeat other Republicans?  Is it really happening?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
