How Bad is Bad?

Last year Republicans were handed their fannies after the 2008 election cycle. They lost both The White House and Congress. Pundits at MSNBC gleefully asked, “Is the Republican party dead?”

Conservatives blamed the moderates and the RINOs.  They said it was because Republicans didn’t have a strong message that they lost.

The moderates countered by blaming picky Conservatives.  They say we either stayed home, or voted for an alternative party candidate.

Which makes me wonder how bad do things have to become before both sides unite?  How bad is bad?

Now that the radical far left wing of the Democratic party is clearly in control, is that enough?  Are things bad enough for Republicans to unite from all corners?

It would be nice if there were plenty of Republicans with enough conservative in them to satisfy both camps, moderate and conservative.  But no.  Not this time.

There’s a special election being held in New York’s 23rd Congressional District.  It’s to fill the vacancy created when President Obama appointed Congressman John McHugh to Secretary of the Army.

Many suspected there was something up with this.  There was more going on than just Obama trying to look bipartisan. It turns out the Republican candidate in the race Dede Scozzafava while running for the State Assembly, “embraced the ballot line of the Working Families Party — a socialist outfit whose political DNA is intertwined with scandal-ridden ACORN. ACORN and the WFP have shared office space in New York City, Arkansas and Illinois. ACORN head Bertha Lewis, a close Scozzafava friend and political supporter, wears a second hat as vice chairman of the WFP. The WFP has been listed in ACORN documents dating back to 2000 as an “affiliate.”

“WOOP!  There it is!”  Scozzafava has ties to ACORN just like Obama.  -hat tip Caffeinated Thoughts and Michelle Malkin

The plan of the radicals is clear.  It’s divide and conquer.  They’ve created a vacancy in a strong red district and split the opposition’s vote.  Republicans will have to choose between a radical far left RINO or an alternative party candidate.  (Which in effect is voting for the Democrat)

So either way Obama’s people win.  They will either turn a strong red district blue or weaken Republicans more by putting either a fake Republican in power or an independent Conservative in his place.

Nice, real nice.

Perhaps all this time, I’ve been asking the wrong question.  It’s not how bad do things have to get  before Republicans unite.  It’s how awful do things have to become before conservatives give up on the GOP altogether,and form their own strong national alternative party.

How bad is bad?
