Karl Rove is a brilliant strategist.  Love your moniker, LipstickonaHillary.  I often say when things get really tough, "Life's a Hillary."

I give you permission to use it as your own.

Rove's prediction...:

"Every Republican senator and virtually every representative challenged in a primary as insufficiently conservative will win."

...is the one which will make or break his credibility. And it will signal the strength, or lack of strength, held in the Tea Party movement.

McConnell, Cornyn, and Enzi will win, for sure. If McConnell can beat back Bevins (and he will), none of the other challengers stand much of a chance.

The key will be to watch how much money outfits like Heritage for Action and Senate Conservative Fund actually spend unseating Republican incumbents instead of targeting Democrats.

Maybe. Each state has its own peculiar circumstances. But even more than that, should "McConnell...beat back Bevins" will the Bevin supporters turn out for him in the general election, and without them can McConnell be reelected?

If they don't, then everyone will clearly see that the Tea Party is about ideological purity in the Republican Party FIRST with defeating Democrats somewhere way down the list of priorities.  Not voting for McConnell in the general will be a vote for Grimes.

Yes but a vote for McCononell is a vote for a democrat too so what is the difference party name doesn't get us anywhere the rhinos aren't real republicans. Rhinos are democrats so I will never vote for a rhino again and if Rove and the republican party leaders don't wake up the party will never win again and you know what if we don't get conservatives leading in this country it will go to hell anyway so me and many of the voters out here won't be voting if rhinos are on the ticket.

"A vote for McCononell(sic) is a vote for a democrat too".   

Dumbest post of the day, the week, and maybe the month.  McConnell is a solid conservative, as is Cornyn, Enzi, and most of the other GOP Senators up for re-election.

If you want Democrats to keep the Senate, just withhold your vote from Republicans in 2014, but the shut the hell up when you get what you want.

Well said, Raml. Why vote for the pale imitation when you may as well elect the real thing? Besides if the anti-McConnell voters stay home, and despite the hysteria present they are not all Tea Partiers (would that they were), it will serve notice to the other RINOs we have had enough.

yeah..that didn't work out too well when pubbies refused to vote for  ::::gasp:::: a mormon. Look at the tragedy that has befallen this once great nation due to THAT strategy. We really showed 'em.
I'm all for extinguishing the political life of all RINOs, so if a solid conservative can win the primary, GREAT!
But I can't see the percentage in the "stay at home" protesting strategy. It just seems crazy to me..
but, JMHO.

The dems have a real plan for continued control...forever.  It's diabolical but it's a solid winning plan. 
Amnesty (8 to 10 million votes), free shit forever, sponsoring fake libertarians to split the conservative vote, fraud, a permanent dependent underclass base.....it goes on and on.

What's our plan?  Purity?? 
Republicans are going to become extinct if we don't wake up.
November 6, 2012, a day in infamy...the death of a republic as we know it.

Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

If you keep on doing what you've always done you are going to keep on getting what you've always got!

And that is a FACT!

To HELL with RINOS  everywhere!

All it will prove is that the Tea Party has lost its power to influence elections. It will also confirm that the primary objective of Tea Partiers is defeating any Republican who is not 100% in line with Tea Party demands.

The Tea Party has lost a couple of rounds of internal Republican politics and is less popular than ever.  In other words, the TP is not coming from a position of leverage.  All it will take is TP refusal to support Republicans they disagree with in 2014 and they're done.
