“If we had a parliamentary system of government, McConnell would be expected to resign.

“The elections results are a massive repudiation of McConnell and the Republican congressional leadership, which aggressively supported Grayson. Coming on the heels of Senator Robert Bennett’s defeat in Utah and the Republican Senatorial Committee’s previous support for Charlie Crist in Florida, it is clear that many Washington, D.C. GOP leaders are enormously out of touch with the base of the Republican Party, grassroots conservatives.

“The new conservatives who are being elected this year are different from the establishment types who went along with the big government policies of George W. Bush, Tom DeLay, Bill Frist, and others.

“The 2010 elections will be a tsunami of Biblical proportions. The voters are angry and frightened at the mess that politicians, as well as the leaders of most of America’s major institutions, have made of our country.

a simple google query and forum search reveals this is the same guy who tried to profit from Ron Paul by making a website masquerading as an official Ron Paul website in 2008 then collecting Ron Paul supporter emails.
He then tried to use the list to raise money for neocon Woody Jenkins A man who was pivotal in disqualifying thousands of Ron Paul supporters in Louisiana thus giving the state to Romney.

He then went on to support Bob Barr and later on attack Ron Paul with a barage of hit piece articles on his ConservativeHQ website. I felt I needed to remind people with short term memory loss
