The Hatch Effect

Political Hacks  Dept
Erick Erickson at Red State:
This year, some long-time Republican Senators are going to get primary challengers.  There will be large megaphones declaring just how conservative those Senators are.  There will be people trotted out to remind you that for decades these have been the men we relied on to save us from big government.

They will ignore... their public votes: ...  They will ignore No Child Left Behind, Medicare Part D, TARP, the General Motors bailout, the now $17 trillion in national debt that the Republicans and Democrats together helped grow.  They will ignore [the] spending measures and continuing resolutions and back room deals and failed promises.

There are no indispensable men in Washington, but over the next year many of the very men responsible for the mess the GOP finds itself in are going to trot out op-ed columnists, talk radio hosts, and TV pundits to tell you that they are, in fact, indispensable...
Valuable advice for the next election. And Senators aren’t the only ‘‘indispensable’’ ones who need to be ‘‘dispensed with.’’
