It is very touching to see how concerned the liberal media become for the welfare of the GOP when they are trying to save Democrats from low standing in the polls. They are pretending to be worried about the welfare of the GOP that might be upset by the nomination of Tea Party candidates in preference to the good old establishment wing.
Until last Tuesday's primaries, the comfortable line was that no Tea Party candidate had yet defeated an incumbent senator this year. The Nebraska Tea Party win was for an open seat. But with State Sen. Chris McDaniel winning more votes than U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran in Mississippi, it is now time for CNN and MSNBC to worry about how the "split" between Tea Party and establishment wings might hurt the GOP chances of winning the Senate in the fall. Seriously? Rachel Maddow on MSNBC argues on the one hand that the nomination of Tea Party supporter McDaniel would make it easier for Democrats to win the Mississippi seat, which should make her happy. But she simultaneously worries about the damage to the GOP old guard. Cochran is 72.
Most conservative and most moderate Republicans (short of flat out terminal RINOs) have enough common sense to know that no matter who the GOP nominates for any Senate seat in 2014, the media will quickly drop all pretenses after the primary and will oppose the GOP candidate no matter who it is, Tea Party or establishment. The only comical part of this fake drama is that news producers at CNN and MSNBC actually seem to think they are fooling GOP voters with their perpetual political spin. This is yet another example of how out of touch with a normal audience these far left of center producers are and might help to explain why they continue to lose viewers. Apparently the financial managers at MSNBC and CNN still do not realize how much the blatant political bias of their networks is costing them money and ratings.
