We're in the mess we're in now because Republicans started acting like liberals when they were in power.
And now, one U.S. senator from Texas has a mess on his hands for what some say is meddling in a race in Alaska where he has no business.
Here's the plot.
Lisa Murkowski is a Republican senator from Alaska.
She's in a primary against challenger Joe miller.
He touts himself a conservative backed by the Tea Party.
Murkowski was supposed to win.
But Miller is ahead.
It's coming down to absentee ballots.
Here's where it gets interesting.
Tea Party folks say Texas Senator John Cornyn, heading up the National Republican Senatorial Committee, sent folks to lawyer-up Murkowski the Rhino!
A RINO is slang for Republican in name only.
In other words..a liberal.
They ask Where is that in the NRSC mission statement?? Are they supposed to be getting involved in primary elections?? Isn't electing a conservative a good thing??
Now, state-wide, including East Texas is having a rally against john Cornyn this week.
There are many Republicans out there salivating because the polls are against Democrats.
But if the elected Republicans act like the Republicans who want to spend and do things the Washington D.C. way-- they're going to find themselves in a very uncomfortable spot.
Ask Mr. Cornyn.
