One thing is clear from Tuesday’s primaries: the lunatics are running the Republican asylum.
Rick Scott, a key figure in the biggest health-care fraud scandal ever, won the Republican nomination for governor of Florida. Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski trails a Sarah Palin-endorsed Tea Partier. And John McCain, who gave America Sarah Palin, survived in Arizona by turning his back on everything he ever stood for.
This is excellent news for the Democratic Party.
Republicans still may win big this year. But, if they do, the Tea Party will claim credit. It will grab the GOP steering wheel and steer the car over the cliff.
Democrats will then be poised for a big comeback in 2012, with Barack Obama winning reelection.
