Even the Right Can Read the Writing

Posted by DavidNYC

For at least a brief moment, at least some members of the wingnutosphere seem to have rejoined the reality-based community. But not so the RNC. From From the Roots:

The RNC blog has a post today proclaiming that last night's election results "are not the sign of a national trend." Maybe the RNC should take a minute to read what some of the other Republican blogs are writing about the election results today.

Captain's Quarters: “What does this mean for the midterms next year? It shows that the GOP can expect a tough time trying to hold their margins... Best of all, it should wake the Republicans to the fact that the successes of the last three cycles will not last forever."

Instapundit writes: "[I]t seems as if the GOP voters didn't turn out for Republicans the way they did in 2004, and I think that can be laid at the feet of the White House and the Republican leadership."

Michelle Malkin: "[T]he Virginia loss should trouble the GOP greatly. Turnout didn't happen, and party leaders have some 'splainin' to do.”

RedState.org: "When Republicans don't give their *own* supporters a reason to vote for them (other than "the Democrats are worse!!"), how in the world can they expect to reach swing voters? Welcome to the consequences of failing to inspire anyone.”

A tip to the RNC: When your fellow Republican bloggers aren't even buying your spin, it might be time to give up.

If you really need links to the wingers' quotes, you can grab `em via the original FTR post. The last comment from RedState is interesting, though - Dems are constantly accused of "not having a message," but at least one person on the right thinks that this problem has instead befallen the GOP.
