You won't be doing much laughing Captain. Let not your heart be troubled, the future is brighter then it has been in years. People are disregarding polls, and t v ads, and going to rallies, and talking to others like they did eons ago. They know what they want, and they are looking for candidates that agree with them on taxes, immigration, the Keystone project. They have people like the Koch brothers who will help them restore America's greatness. Life is good.

People in the TEA group, Democrats, Republicans, and Independents alike voted for Brat. Ann Coulter had fundraisers for him. He will win in November, and he will be greeted by many new Republican, and Democrat faces that replaced the corrupt, lawless current bunch of corrupt politicians. They will but a stop to any immigration Amnesty, and they will begin preparing for a new President in 2016.
Tell me if I'm wrong but, wasn't this a primary election? How are you laying claims that anyone from any other party BUT a registered member of the Republican parties seventh district cast a vote for a Republican candidate.

11 States have cross over voters. Meaning you can declare whatever party you wish to vote for on primary day. Democrats wanted to choose a candidate they could beat in November, as it turns out they can't beat Brat either.

I apologize... I didn't realize Virgina was a crossover state. This says that it wasn't the Democratic vote.

Both Brat and his opponent Trammell are professors at the same liberal arts school. Both are theologists. Both majored in economics. Why do you feel the Democrats needed to oust Cantor in the primary? To insure the loss of Republican turnout in the fall? Or isn't Brat the Tea party candidate even though he (Brat) never once said he was.

It's so funny that blinkered Righties like you think that tearing apart your OWN party is the same as tearing down "liberals." You forget you're only the 27%ers, clown. MOST Americans don't agree with you and don't WANT your wackjobs running things.
Screw QE and Wall Street that are destroying the value of our dollar. Screw politicians that think printing money can fix our broken economy. Screw politicians that think granting amnesty or raising legal immigration quotas will help create jobs or increase wages. Hogwash. This was a big win for the American people over the establishment forces that are destroying our middle class. Both parties suck but this is a step in the right direction for the Rs.

You are correct. We've had enough of the lying Muslim buck passer in Chief screwing up the country. A review of his tenure shows failure followed by debacle followed by scandal...... ad nauseum. History will not be kind to Obama's legacy. He makes Nixon look honest and Carter competent. There are no words in the English language to describe the man.... But good foriegn one is lowsheckie..... THAT covers the gist of the incredibly incompetent foulball dipweed we've been stuck with because people got stupid a couple of times.

Life was always good until Democrats try and ruin it. i.e. Jimmah Carter. Barack O'dopeface.

Re immigration:

Of those who voted for Cantor’s primary challenger David Brat in Tuesday’s Virginia primary, said the poll, just 22% cited immigration as the main reason for their vote. A total of 77% cited other factors such as Cantor’s perceived focus on “national politics instead of local needs” and a belief he had “lost touch with voters.”

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) soundly defeated his primary competition despite his support of comprehensive immigration reform.

Why are we so obsessed with these bogus polls? The polls said that Cantor had a 30 point lead and he lost by 11. That's a big swing. Polls are only tools to be used by parties, People who believe polls are being manipulated. Come on R, you're way smarter than that.

Brat was elected to run for a seat by a tiny minority of Virginians, a minority even of Cantor's own DISTRICT. Teabaggers aren't doing well in most places; real Americans know they're wacko scumbags who shouldn't be running the country.

It's too important a job to be left to amateur cranks.
