re: #88 Lidane

Couple of thoughts…1) Palin isn’t a candidate — at least not yet; 2) the others are tea party favorites but are really quite different. O’Donnell is a complete unmitigated disaster and is obviously not qualified to hold the office (or any other public office) even if she ran unopposed. Pallidino is just plain weird and someone I wouldn’t want to meet in an alley, dark or otherwise. Angle is also weird and comes off as not being very street smart (unlike Palladino) and naive. (On second thought, this IS entertaining.) However, at least as to Angle, I think people are so sick of the economic mess we have now that they are willing to vote for just about anybody who is running against someone associated with the economic policies of the last couple years. Reid obviously qualifies and absent being indicted, Angle has a good chance of winning. I can’t even say I disagree with that result should it happen because the economic mess is by far the most important issue we face and Reid has done nothing to help and a lot to hurt it. That’s the one area where I think people conflate the tea party and the general feeling of the electorate. They are quick to label the tea party is a fringe group when that is an entirely irrelevant consideration. When it comes to basic issues - taxes and spending - the majority of the voters are on the same page whether the tea party agrees with them (as they do) or not. It doesn’t mean the “silent majority” endorse the tea party or any social issue, but the fact is the electorate is very angry about the economic mess and in many states and districts will undoubtedly “throw the bums out.”
