Victory has many fathers, but defeat is an orphan, they say. Another difference is that only defeat requires a scapegoat:
“The Tea Party movement really is quite a bit different than the old Republican conservative movement,” [Delaware loser Mike] Castle said. “They’re more than willing to take out Republicans, call us Republicans in name only, or whatever it may be. It was one thing when you were dealing with Democrats and Republicans. Now you’re dealing with divisions within your own party.”
Since when is the majority — and conservatives are the overwhelming majority of Republican primary voters — responsible for divisions in a coalition? But enough about that useless idiot Mike Castle. Let’s exult in the useless idiocy of defeated Democrats:
Defeated Democratic Rep. Carol Shea-Porter (N.H.) suggested in a recent interview that Chinese interests contributed to her loss in the November midterm elections. . . .
“I think it’s strangling us,” she told ABC News in a recent interview. “They’re in the halls of Congress everywhere, and it means, for example, that you sit on a committee and you say something about concern about Chinese influence or something, you don’t even know if in the next election, somehow or another, they manage to send some money to some group that now doesn’t even have to say where they got it.”
