A Loss for Moderate Pragmatism

The first casualty in the "tea party" hysteria about incumbents is the loss in the primary for three-term, moderate, bi-partisan conservative William Bennett of Utah. This is a true shame. This kind of reaction is not even rational, and it doesn't bode well for the country.

You mean Robert Bennett, not William. I wouldn't call William moderate at all.

You're absolutely right. My mistake.

Bi-partisanship in and of itself isn't something to cheer for--siding with the she-devil and the oaf isn't going to do anyone any good.

No, bipartisan isn't in and of itself preferable. But that doesn't change the fact that Bennett is a good man and Senator who lost to misinformed voters over silliness - and that loss is not good for Utah or the country.
