I wonder if the brass at the Stupid (a.,k.a. 'Republican) party

will get the idea that people are fairly sick of 'R' candidates that are nothing more than Evil Party Lite. And sometimes not so lite.
Scozzafava is an abortion rights advocate who favors gay marriage. It would be one thing if Scozzafava balanced that social liberalism with fiscal conservatism. But as a state assemblywoman, she voted for massive tax increases, Democratic budgets and a $180 million state bank bailout. She also supported the trillion-dollar federal stimulus package — which every House Republican voted against.

More troubling, Scozzafava in past elections has embraced the ballot line of the Working Families Party — a socialist outfit whose political DNA is intertwined with scandal-ridden ACORN. ACORN and the WFP have shared office space in New York City, Arkansas and Illinois. ACORN head Bertha Lewis, a close Scozzafava friend and political supporter, wears a second hat as vice chairman of the WFP. The WFP has been listed in ACORN documents dating back to 2000 as an “affiliate.”

...
Scozzafava’s husband is a leading upstate New York union organizer. She supports the federal “card-check” legislation that would massively boost union rolls — and Democratic voting rolls — at the expense of rank-and-file workers’ free choice. And for that matter, at the expense of Republican electoral prospects. Card check is the key to a Democratic majority in perpetuity. Big Labor bosses have said as much.
And this is someone of whom the NRCC says "Our best chance to put responsible and principled leaders in Washington starts here..."

Not hardly. And I've got news for the NRCC: when Gingrich started sucking the global warming kool-aid and making commercials with Pelosi, he lost an awful lot of attraction to people who actually hold conservative and libertarian views.

Pay attention, Stupid Party; we don't want to vote for a socialist democrat politician just because you put an 'R' after their name. Get the message, or else.

Your 'Evil Party Lite' link is buggered?   Was it perhaps, this Wash' Times article that you meant to point too?

Note to self: stop going in circles.
