    Oh dear... Apparently, the Tea Party is going to primary a bunch of Republican Senators. Guess Dems will have gains in 2012. icon_lol.gif

    As you are settling down from yesterday’s victories, you will want to also pay attention to this list. While many will be focusing on a potential Presidential pick for the GOP, we should not all get distracted by that.

    We have a significant opportunity to improve the Senate GOP through some primaries. Here is a list of potential targets for primaries — these are all of the Senate Republicans up for re-election in 2012:

    John Barasso (WY)
    Scott Brown (MA)
    Bob Corker (TN)
    John Ensign (NV)
    Orrin Hatch (UT)
    Kay Bailey Hutchison (TX)
    Jon Kyl (AZ)
    Richard Lugar (IN)
    Olympia Snowe (ME)
    Roger Wicker (MS)

    Note that this is just the list of Senate Republicans running. Not all will be targets, but it will be from these men and women that the tea party movement starts looking for targets.

    Now, before you all get giddy about Olympia Snowe, I would respectfully suggest that Corker, Hatch, Hutchison, Lugar, and Wicker make better targets as we have a much greater certainty of both beating them in primaries and also winning the general election.

    Wicker and Corker in particular make exciting prospects for the tea party movement.

    This is great news.
    We can look forward to more ignorant, hate mongering, homophobic, racist nut jobs getting the Republican primary nominations, without a chance in hell of winning the general elections.
