New York 23 Race For Congress Revealing: Extremism A Threat To Future Of GOP

Who would ever have imagined that the GOP nominee for the Congressional seat vacated by John McHugh, the new Secretary of the Army, would leave the race, and endorse the Democrat, after seeing her party abandon her en masse to the Conservative Party nominee, who does not even live in the district, but represents the attempt of the right wing extremists to take over the GOP and marginalize it as a warning to other moderate Republicans?

This race will be more noticed by many, than the Virginia and New Jersey gubernatorial elections, as it represents a trend that may continue in the future–the extremist evolution of a party once respected and significant toward irrelevancy.

It is hard to imagine independents and moderates moving to join such a party in the future, but it represents a crisis for the GOP leadership in Congress as to their viability for the upcoming 2010 and 2012 elections and beyond!

    Many Democrats, including me, have wished the destruction of the Republican party as it now exists. However, I guess I should be careful for what I wish. This conservative movement, with a specific section of the media backing it, is getting out of hand and dangerous. It may get powerful enough to drive the country back to extreme conservatism simply through the shouting down of any alternate opinion. If you scream loud enough and long enough, what you are screaming must be true. I hope we are not in for another period of McCarthism in this country. Remember, at first, McCarthy’s committee was looked at as harmless.
