AMERICAblog: Moderate GOPer defeated

AMERICAblog: Joe in DC posts an interesting note to yesterday's election news: "Surely, the traditional media will be moaning about how conservative the GOP has there's no room for moderates in the Republican Party:

The contest, which has drawn national attention, represented an ideological clash between Schwarz, a moderate, and Walberg, who was one of the most conservative state lawmakers during his 16 years in the state House.

The incumbent, Schwarz, wasn't all that moderate, but he did vote against the anti-gay constitutional amendment. He was off the reservation so he had to be destroyed. That's what Republicans do.

The media accepts that in the Republican Party. But beating Joe Lieberman, oh, that's just wrong."
