It doesn't stop them from voting en masse in the primaries and eliminating any moderates

Yes, you can name five Senate seats Republicans could have captured except for the strict conservative agenda. Todd Akin, Dick Lugar, Olympia Snow, Harry Reed, the one in Delaware where they ran the witch. And there are more.

Wall Street Journal had article that the Democrats spent heavily to help Todd Akin get elected in the primary. Democrats spent more than Akin did on advertising for him in the primary. Then they sprung the abortion issue on him and kept it as an issue that distracted from what Romney was trying to do.

Strict abortion position skewers Republicans in that they could not moderate their position without risking alienating their religious right supporters. But you would think they had thought of the issue and had a best scenario to deal with it.

How did Dems get through the whole election without ever answering a question about gun control. Gay marriage seemed to do them in when George Bush ran for reelection in '04, but that seems to be waning.

WSJ also reported that Democrats spent heavily in primary season to stir up trouble for Romney, which caused him to spend heavily and depleted resources he would otherwise have spent for better grass roots organizations.

The Dems are not dumb. They did as expected. But Repubs seemed unprepared somehow for the onslaught.
