Election Final: Like Rand Paul Won't Tread on GOP

Somehow, I don’t see things working out between Rand Paul, Mitch McConnell and the establishment GOP. The symbolism of the Tea Party is not just branding but reflects an explicit anti-establishment ideology, the images here representing that wedge.

And here’s a couple more shots I admired on election eve:

Not even a last campaign stop at the shooting range and a photo op with a big gun could save GOP’s Tim Burns in tonight’s race for Murtha’s seat in PA-12.

So long, Arlen!  He’s been around since the Warren Commission.
