I predict there is going to be backlash over this.  All the GOPers were all over twitter tonight telling people this all means that we should vote for Christie in 2016 ... they are desperate to kill off all conservatives... but to basically lose this race on purpose is not going to wash.

If the "Tea Party" voters couldn't figure out that Sarvis was a plant, then they don't deserve any sympathy.  The truth was right before our eyes, and people, even on this board, have ignored my posts pointing out that Sarvis was a plant. 

How is is a win for the "Tea Party" when they voted for an obvious false flag candidate?   **nononono*

I POSTED THAT SARVIS WAS A PLANT 5 DAYS AGO.  IF I KNEW IT, WHY CAN'T THE "TEA PARTY" VOTERS?   8888crybaby

In this case, the LIVs are those who voted for the phony "Tea Party" candidate, though.  Not exactly a ringing endorsement for the 3rd Party movement.   :patriot:

So let me get this straight.  Tea Party voters support a Democrat plant and give the governorship by TWO FRIGGIN' points to a crook?

Good job, Tea Partiers.  Is this the kind of stuff we can expect next November?  Way to get your policies enacted, electing Democrats.

Ummm he ran as a LIBERTARIAN......... not Tea Party.  The guy was for - among other things - a massive expansion of medicaid. Based on his platform the Tea Party voters is not his voter.

Not following your logic.  Wasn't Sarvis the libertarian?  Don't you mean the libertarian voters don't deserve sympathy?

Why would Tea Partiers vote for libertarian Sarvis rather than fellow Tea Party type candidate Cuccinelli?

and for the record - according to exit polls - the government shutdown had no affect on this election. Even in northern Virginia they did not blame the GOP over the President or vis-versa.

Cooch lost by 1.6% of the vote.  Rove spent ZERO in VA they spent 13 million for McDonalds election... so don't tell me the GOPe is doing anything other than trying to destroy the conservative wing of the GOP.

Hey Sinky--while we're waiting for you to sort out the FACTS before you shoot your big mouth off again, maybe you can explain why Rove and Co chose not to back Cuccinelli? 

Did they get him confused with the libertarian stealth candidate too??   :silly:

McDonald got 58 percent, just four years ago.

Cucc's loss MAY be fruit of Republican factional infighting. Think about that. A persuadable independent or democrat looks at the Republican scene, and says "...what a mess.  Why should I trust those people with my state's governance? They cannot even get along with each other."

People, the GOP's image, the brand, has gone down and stayed down. All the distraction about the GOPe and the Tea Party, does not overcome that fact.

Polls before and after the shutdown said the GOP would take greater blame. Boom, distraction-website. Website, website, website.

Obama goes down, but that does NOT mean the GOP goes up.

Guess what. The GOP is still down, and unless the GOPe and Tea Party get together, it will stay down and lose more elections.

Exactly. There is no actual organized "tea party," no matter how much a few here would like to believe it.  He ran as a big-L libertarian, and there were enough uneducated voters to vote for him, even though they should have known he was a Democrat plant.

His forth point that "The Republican Party establishment did virtually nothing to support the conservative, Cuccinelli" is also a most excellent observations that bodes well for the Tea Party.  When all the tea party conservatives who comment daily that they wont give the RNC another dime, begin pairing that with demands on how he RNC directs its cash, there will be no stopping the Tea Party victories...may they all be as stunning as last nights!

You mean as stunning and unexpected as Chris Christie's win?  The RNC pumped mega-bucks into Chris Christie's campaign -- because it was such going to be such a nail biter, don'tcha know.   :silly:

Better that Christie $$ be YOUR hard-earned money than mine, chump-o.    :beer:

The "tea party" candidate did far better than either McCain or Romney both of whom are closer to your political views.

Once-Ler, you're getting into the weeds. We need slogans, generalizations, black-and-white arguments. What are you trying to do, clarify things? Establish a rational basis for a given outcome? Sheesh!

Cuccinelli won independents big! He won married women and men.  Exit polls blamed both parties equally for the shut down which means it had ZERO affect on the race.   Had the GOPe and company spent anywhere near what they spent six years ago on McDonald then Cucinelli would have won huge... it would also have helped if the RGA has given the money directly to the campaign for their ads instead of running incredibly stupid ads on China -- I mean WTH are they running ads about China when Cucinelli was trounching McAuliff over Obamacare and gaining in the polls..

and if Rove really said that then he is full of crap, because the polls blamed both parties EQUALLY - the GOP and Obama for the shutdown... go look at the exit polls, Rove is blowing smoke.

The fact is the RNC spent 3 Million in VA and only 1.5 million in NJ.
