Republican Congressman Bob Inglis of South Carolina, who is as conservative as they come, was defeated for re-election in the Republican Primary. No chance that seat was going Democratic, but he just wasn't conservative enough. Why? Listen to the interview by CNN's John Roberts:
This hard, hard turn to the right in the GOP is going to devastate this party, if not relegate it to permanent minority party status after this election. The damage to the GOP brand, the party of Lincoln, is so bad that whatever remains will be a shell of its former self.
I'm not sure how Moderate Republicans will be able to stay in the GOP? While I will disagree a whole lot with Conservatives like Congressman Inglis, there is a place for people like him in Congress. Not a bunch of folks who will only intensify the white-hot rhetoric and push outright lies, misinformation, and distortions as absolute truth.
