Stacy McCain however, was busy blogging all day and I want to point to you his piece warning the national Republican establishment to stay out of Republican primaries. We saw what happens when they interfere with NY-23 race, not to mention John Cornyn's early endorsement of Charlie Crist in Florida over Marco Rubio.
The national Republican establishment is so far out of touch with what needs to be done in the Republican party to resume leadership in this country that it is frightening. They've yet to get the message that we don't need any more RINOs in Washington. Now Rep. John Boehner is backing Rep. Parker Griffith in Alabama, someone who votes with Nancy Pelosi most of the time.
As Stacy said,
"Just as with Cornyn’s support for Crist against Marco Rubio, Boehner’s backing of Griffith puts the national GOP establishment in the position of campaigning against the exact kind of dynamic young leaders they need to be supporting."

Update: And on a related note, don't miss this report that Evangelical donor Mark DeMoss has penned a letter to Michael Steele expressing disgust over the leaked PowerPoint presentation and vowing to donate his generous contributions from now on only to those candidates he supports rather than to the party establishment. Bravo!
The depictions of President Obama, Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Harry Reid were shameful, immature and uncivil, at best. While I realize your office made steps to distance you from this presentation I’m afraid the presentation is representative of a culture and mindset within the Republican National Committee; consequently, I will no longer contribute to any fundraising entity of our Party—but will contribute only to individual candidates I choose to support.
