Safe Mode: On
As Losses Mount, GOP Begins Looking in the Mirror

Since losing 30 seats and their 12-year stranglehold on power in 2006, House Republicans have kept asking themselves the same question: Can it get any worse?

On Tuesday, they may get another answer they won't like.

With lots of help from Washington - including more than $1.3 million in campaign cash and a last-minute visit by Vice President Cheney - Mississippi Republicans are desperately trying to retain a congressional seat in one of the most reliably conservative districts in the nation.

The stakes in the 1st District special election couldn't be higher, strategically or symbolically. The loss of a traditionally GOP seat to a Democrat would be the third in a special election this spring and the second in the Deep South after the May 3 victory of Rep. Don Cazayoux (D-La.).

  • "They blamed poor candidates in races in Louisiana and Illinois ..."

    LOL! I know ... where have all those GOOD Republican candidates all gone?

    If Republicans would stop breaking laws, touching little boys, defrauding taxpayers and cheating on their trophy wives with gay prostitutes, they wouldn't be forced to resign and lose party seats in special elections.

    • Republicons will wipe their dirty asses with the new toilet paper of choice...the American dollar! Something they have brought about in their 12 years of political control.
      America wanted "compassionate conservatism"...you got it! Have fun collecting your minimum wage.

  • I read a report saying that younger Christian rightists (like 18-30?) are abandoning the GOP (or starting to). Iraq and the economy were the main reasons, besides not liking McCain that much. The Christian Right is the bread and butter of the GOP, and they're losing it. I love it!

  • Well, it took almost 30 years for Christians to realize they were getting played for fools by the party of unlimited greed and death, but better late than never.

  • Ron Paul Is the Only Noble Republican.
    I'm Voting Green Party Nominee regardless of who it is. Hopefully Cynthia McKinney from Georgia. She's a real African-American and a very noble woman

  • Republicans are not "introspective" , they are activist and will put their heads together and think of new ways to suppress and cage votes.
