As we get deeper into the 2010 election cycle, the cry is going to resonate even louder: Fire the Incumbents! But even then, there may be some who are uncertain as to the repercussions of such an act.
It didn't happen in Indiana in two significant races, but that doesn't mean the fight is over. In fact, I submit to the readers of this sleepy little blog that it's just getting started.
On Saturday, the Utah State Convention failed to renominate the GOP U.S. Senator Bob Bennett, for a fourth term. Utah politics is a bit unique, so I won't go into the details. But if you want you can read them here. One thing you can be sure of is, the TEA Party was a strong influence in this convention.
Yesterday, we saw the same kind of reaction in West Virginia. But this time, it was a 14 term Democratic Congressman, Alan Mollohan, falling victim to his party's axe because he is corrupt and too cuddly to President Obama's progressive agenda.
I think this clearly shows we can turn over Congress in both parties, both in the primaries and in the general election. This should encourage people of both parties that no one is so firmly entrenched that they cannot be fired. Some districts may be solid Democratic and would never go for a Republican, but that doesn't mean they must continue to tolerate idiotic and corrupt weasels representing them.
