Republicans: The Sky ain't falling
The backbiting and arguing that is going on within the conservative/ Republicancircles is rather dssappointing. This is just one election, a shock to the system is always welcome, this is an opportunity to recover, recollect, retool and prepare for 2008. The election was an indictment of a number of issues and not one of the party's inherent ideology, Conservatism is still the dominant ideology (and considering the number of of conservative dems picked, its only going to grow).The dust shall settle, and the issues of corruption and Iraq shall replaced by other issues, and the Republicans shall rise once again.`The focus should be on ensuring a republican majority in 2008. This is a set back, but not a major one. Conservatism is still the major ideology in the nation and much the same way the 2004 election did not signal a permanent realignment, the 2006 election does not mean the sky has fallen.
