I live in an alternate universe

November 27, 2010

New York state could be the only place where the Tea Party Movement may have hurt the Republicans rather than help them. It didn’t help that Carl Paladino was not ready for prime time and got set up by the Dems and the fringe stream media like a bowling pin. And now King Cuomo is firmly in charge.

In the next two years Republicans will have to decide what really works in New York may not be the same as what works for the rest of the country. Perhaps it’s better to be pragmatic than idealistic.

On the other hand two years can be a long time in the age of 24/7 hour news cycles. The Republican tsunami that swept most of the nation could grow in 2012 to reach into places as unlikely as the NY-21 where the GOP candidate did allot better than the usual token challenge in 2010.

But whatever optimism Republicans have about this nation’s future. They need to remember that New York State is an alternate reality.
