Sigh. Bored socialite Sue Lowden, who really can't say if she would have voted to bail out Wall Street, is running away with the GOP Senate nomination.
And Latino (let's see that birth certificate!) heartthrob Brian Sandoval, who personally fought the Nevada Supreme Court to defend the largest tax increase in state history, remains firmly in command of the GOP gubernatorial race.
They shook their fists at the sky. They hollered. They made signs. And now all that teabagger vim and vigor is going to be rewarded with Nevada GOP nominees who are straight out of the establishment wing of George W. Bush's corporate coddling big government borrow-and-spend Republican Party.
Well played, teabag nation, well played. No, seriously. For a minute there it looked like you might fundamentally transform the Republican Party through the sheer force of your rage, ignorance and paranoia. But instead, GOP insiders that you love to hate have politely pretended you're not whackadoodles and ended up playing you very well.
So somebody tell the woman in that picture that the giant might as well go back to sleep. If and when high-priced Republican campaign consultants in Washington need her to make a sign and stand in the back of a pickup, they'll let her know.
