CRACK! McConnell’s Metal Strap of Control Breaks

Ben Sasse just won the Republican primary for the Senate seat currently held by retiring Senator Mike Johanns, marking the trail of shifting public opinion, as well as marking the backslide of establishment effectiveness.
Throughout the past three years, the Republican leadership has done what it could to remove tea party and conservative influence from any portion of the party, as well as within the Capitol buildings in the States and National government. Boehner has purged conservatives from committees, McConnell has overtly and covertly worked against conservative efforts to dismantle Obamacare, Priebus has disrespected conservative darling Sarah Palin, and made jokes about constitutional lawyer and activist leader Mark Levin, the National Republican Senatorial Committee, led by Jerry Moran and ex-Cantor staffers have smeared every conservative the Senate Conservatives Fund has backed, the RNC has made rules that work to keep anyone not anointed by leadership off ballots, and on and on. And all of that effort has been quite public, with each participant in the hoped-for demise of the tea party and talk radio influence, using cocky slams to try to appear more in control; Boehner’s, “It’s too hard,” and McConnell’s, “crush the tea party,” are examples, just to name a couple.
