PPP on DE and Moderates vs. Conservatives in GOP

PPP talks about the Senate Primary in Delaware and lets loose a piece of analysis that describes what so many politicos get exactly WRONG:
If Castle is indeed defeated Tuesday night it will be yet another sign that conservatives have a strangle hold on the Republican Party and moderates may or may not be welcome anymore.
This is so wrong I can't stand it. 

If moderates lose their grip on the GOP in Delaware or anywhere else, they are still welcome.  "Moderates" just have to go along to get along much like they demanded conservatives to do when the moderates were running the show.

Unlike the radical professional Left, the groundswell of support for conservatism in the Republican party is a genuine grassroots movement that have had it with BOTH parties and the way they have screwed the country over at every opportunity.

SIDEBAR: Notice you never hear about how awful it is when the "progressives" hijack the Democratic Party and threw out the "moderates" on the left side of the aisle.

Granted, PPP is probably talking about the situation in Delaware specifically; but it is exactly this sort of thinking that causes the kind of over-reach that we've seen from both parties here in Ohio.

And, yes, I see that PPP says "may or may not" but the implication is clear as day: PPP and radical professional Left believe that the conservatives will drive the "moderates" out of the party.  They HOPE that is the case because that is the only way THEY can maintain grip on power anywhere.

I think they are misunderestimating the power of the Tea Party movement.  We'll see...
