Cantor, Steele repudiate Rush; wingnuts freak out (Updated x2: RedState of Denial)

Republicans are hopelessly stuck with the same problem that has plagued them through two election cycles: a vast gulf between their base and majority of Americans. And, as we know, Obama and Democrats have successfully exploited this by focusing attention on Rush Limbaugh, driving the wedge between Republican officials and American voters even deeper.

So what happens when two high-profile Republicans try to distance themselves from Limbaugh -- the Republican base erupts and condemns their own leaders. Can't win for losing in the GOP these days.

Stunning diary on redstate rec-list

It's been a rather busy time recently, with the auto companies, Blago, and Minnesota, but something else has happened, something truly shocking.  Some of us occasionally check out what the opposition is saying, but I personally limit myself to redstate (I checked what freerepublic was saying on November 4th and my eyes started to bleed, my bowels failed, and I woke up 2 days later in a puddle of my own vomit.  Lesson learned).  But on redstate, occasionally seemingly rational discussion seems to occur.  Today, something truly rational hit their rec list:

RedState.com Front Page: The Presidential race is over.

Looks like even the front page of RedState is throwing in the towel:

Let's be brutally honest. Barack Obama is going to win the presidential election, and probably by a lot. We'll avoid recriminations and "I told you so"s and second guessing here. Let's just face the reality. Obama is trading at 84 on in-trade. Overnight quickie polls show the public overwhelmingly thinks Obama won last night's debate - which probably has less to do with any "objective" scoring and more to do with the fact that folks have simply decided to vote for Obama. Obama has more cash than McCain and independent groups are spending more in his support than they are in favor of McCain. Obama's national lead is in double digits in many polls, and per Real Clear Politics, Obama leads in every - that's EVERY, as in all - battleground states. His leads in Michigan, Pennsylvania, New Mexico, Minnesota, Wisconsin, New Hampshire, even Colorado, Virginia, and Florida, are all outside the margin of error.

So Barack Obama is the next president of the United States, and the Democrats will gain seats in the House and the Senate.
