RINO Gabriel Gomez lost to Democrat Ed Markey in the special election to fill the Massachusetts U.S. Senate seat vacated by John Kerry. I say, "Thank God." We cannot allow Democrat-lite RINOs like Gomez to define the GOP.However, I have little hope that the "stuck on fear, panic, and stupid" GOP will get it. Despite their wasting tons of money backing Gomez, who agrees with 90% of the Democrat agenda, he still lost. And yet, I guarantee the GOP will interpret the loss as evidence that our party needs to move farther to the left.

Why should liberal Massachusetts voters select a Democrat-lite Gomez over a full-bodied Democrat like Ed Markey? Moderate Republicans thought six of one, half-dozen of the other and stayed home. Conservative Republicans rightly could not bring themselves to vote for Gomez, who promised not to oppose Obama's agenda.

Purging RINO's from the republican party is divine intervention. If they get rid of enough of them, I might consider returning to the republican party.
