When The Rump Votes, Ctd

Michael Rosen debates Beinart:

The GOP simply nominated the most conservative candidate it could find with a reasonable chance of winning.

So desperate is Beinart to further the false narrative of an irate, scattershot Republican overreaction to the Democrats’ myriad failings that he ignores the signal moderate GOP recruiting triumphs that have characterized 2010, such as Sen. Scott Brown in Massachusetts, Rep. Mike Castle, the prohibitive favorite in Delaware’s Senate race, and Rep. Mark Kirk, currently leading the Senate contest in Obama’s home state. Irresponsible anger? Hardly.
