The beltway’s favorite house “expert,” Charlie Cook, is “dumbfounded.” Why, some Republicans who caved on the bailouts and the “stimulus” might face primary opposition from the right.
How dare those “cannibalizing ideologues” challenge these sensible men! Why would these “extremists” be so self-destructive, opposing the next New Deal, and impeding our bipartisan efforts “to help pull the country out of its horrible economic decline”?
Charlie really cares about the Republican Party, he really does. Kind of like Nelson Rockefeller did in 1964.
