The results were clear in their referendum on two political dynamics and still unclear on the third. The victory by Rand Paul was a clear rejection of the establishment. The loss by Arlen Specter and the struggles of Blanche Lincoln continue to rejection of incumbents on both sides. Meanwhile, Democrat Mark Critz won the special election in Pennsylvania 12. Then again, Critz ran on pro gun, pro life, and anti Obamacare. That race was complicated by the primaries and tough Senate race. So, what does that say about Obama? Who knows?
I'm amused by the Democrats that think that Rand Paul's victory puts Kentucky in play. Do they know anything about Kentucky? Do they realize that there's a strong anti Democrat sentiment? Now, they think that Rand Paul is vulnerable.
The verdict for the Tea Parties is still unclear. They didn't put Tim Burns over the top in Pa 12. They won in Kentucky but that was a primary. The tea parties are taking victories in some places and losses in others. It's still an evolving electoral force.
