Updated: A Clue?

Update Update Update Update Update Update Update Update Update Update

Well, according to CNN, the GOP did not sack Lisa Murkowski as party leader on the Energy and Natural Resources Committee.  Do the votes of the Alaskans not matter after all?  Lame excuses about her being gone anyway ring hollow.

She’s running as an I.N.D.E.P.E.N.D.E.N.T… …which is NOT-REPUBLICAN.  So, why would we even keep her as the party leader on the trash bin committee?

Did the Senate GOP start to get a clue about what’s going on in America?

Lisa Murkowski, current U.S. Senator from Alaska,  lost her primary bid for re-election to Tea-Party backed candidate Joe Miller.  With disdain for the choice made by voters and in a fit comparable to a 3-year-old child, Murkowski launched a write-in campaign for U.S. Senator.  Ignoring the will of the Republican Alaskan voters is no surprise to those watching this year’s election activity with Charlie Crist launching a similar Independent bid after losing a Republican Primary.

On Wednesday, Senate Republicans voted to strip Lisa Murkowski as the party leader on the Energy and Natural Resources Committee.  In response to her rejection of the will of the Alaskan voters, the Senate Republicans rejected her.

I’m sure that Murkowski and the State Run Media will bemoan the treatment by the GOP, but keeping her at the helm of the powerful committee would be akin to making Arlen Specter the Minority Leader.

Could this be a glimmer of hope about the Republican Party?  …that they are starting to understand that America is done with the ‘good-ole-boys-and-girls-club’ and that when we put you out, you’re out.

I hear statements from the Republicans that they need to control, contain, reduce, cap and reign in spending.  Statements like that make me think they don’t get it.  Tea Party Americans don’t want that; they want MASSIVE cuts to spending, major cuts to departments and programs, and a hatchet taken to the budget and the IRS!

I hear statements from the Republicans that they want to correct, fix, and improve Obamacare.  I hear some say they will rip it out by its roots.  Tea Party Activists want it ripped out!

I really don’t think the GOP gets it yet; but this is certainly a step in the right direction.
