Conservatism wins in Texas

Texas, Ted Cruz, the Tea Party, Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, and arguably Chic fil A, all had a very big day yesterday. 

For anyone who has doubted that the movement elections of 2010 were anything but a fundamental shift in conservative politics, I give you the Marco Rubio of 2012, Ted Cruz of Texas.  Who would have thought that Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, the odds-on favorite, would lose to this first-time candidate for office.

I didn’t realize until I read it this morning that Ted’s father emigrated from Cuba, making the Rubio comparison even more appropriate.

Glenn Beck rallied over 65000 in Dallas a few days ago, but the media ignored it.  I imagine more than a few of those attendees voted for Ted.

Sarah Palin’s support for Ted solidifies her standing with the small-government-social conservative crowd (as if her cred needed any support).  Given VP Cheney’s “mistake” remark of a few days ago, I would say that the mistake was NOT the selection of Sarah Palin, but the nomination of John McCain.  Perhaps the GOP-e will learn the lesson of yesterday’s Cruz victory:  conservatives will no longer be silent and watch the establishment destroy the country we love.

Oh BTW, today is Chic fil a Appreciation Day.  Go enjoy a chicken sandwich.
