Meet Spencer Bachus.
Rep. Bachus lashed out against Palin and the Tea Party on November 4th while speaking to the South Shelby (Ala.) Chamber of Commerce. “The Senate would be Republican today except for states (in which Gov. Palin endorsed candidates) like Christine O’Donnell in Delaware,” Bachus said. “Sarah Palin cost us control of the Senate.” He went on to say that Tea Party candidates did well in U.S. House races, but in the U.S. Senate races, “they didn’t do well at all.” Bachus is mistaken in his attempts to place blame. In fact, it is the very policies he champions that cost the GOP its chance to win control of the Senate.
Bachus comes from a gerrymandered safe GOP district. The only chance we had to beat him was in the GOP primary, where a Tea Party backed candidate, a minister, was too nice to run against Bachus' pitiful record. If there's a GOP face on the banking crisis, it is his. But could we talk about that? Nooooo. Could we talk about how he sold his soul to the PRC communists in the 90s? Nooooo. So Bachus is still there. He had better retire after this though, or I'LL run against him in 2012, and even if he beats me, his reputation will not survive the experience.
