The question "Did you hear us?" has been answered

and they said, "Nope!" 

During my morning perusal of Memeorandum I came across this little gem:

GOP woos 'Morning Joe' for Fla. Senate

Had I not read it at The Hill I would have thought it was some kind of cruel joke.  Joe Scarborough?  That is who John (whole lotta love for Charlie Crist) Cornyn thinks is a "suitable" candidate for the next Florida senate race?  Geez, why doesn't the NRSC just start backing Democrats for crying out loud?

I've sent the following email to Reince Priebus, RNC Chairman:

Dear Chairman Priebus,

You are new and I think you deserve a fair shake and I think you deserve to know why a lot of Republicans have quit calling ourselves "Republican" and prefer to be known as "conservatives". Many of us are fed up with the Republican Party. We feel that the Party takes us for granted. We feel that you ask us for donations but ignore our input. Case in point:

GOP woos 'Morning Joe' for Fla. Senate

The last time John Cornyn and the NRSC decided to interfere in Florida politics the anointed one was Charlie Crist. We all know how well that turned out. As Marco Rubio won straw poll after straw poll the NRSC stood by their man Crist. Had Crist not left the party Cornyn and Company would have followed him straight off the cliff. Well, here we go again. And for that matter-Joe Scarborough? Really? What does the NRSC have against Republicans?

For an idea of how well this news is going over I suggest you read Not One Red Cent a blog started in response to the NRSC's knack for backing the least conservative candidates in the field. Or for some specific reasons why the wooing of Scarborough is mind boggling to conservatives, Prof. Jacobson has an excellent post at Legal Insurrection. I have no doubt that by the end of the day there will be plenty of reaction to this news throughout the Conservative blogosphere.

I want to see the Republican Party succeed but if I have to chose between being a Republican and being a Conservative the Republican Party loses hands down. We Conservatives sent a clear message last November. It is apparent that not everyone in the Republican Party heard us. As party chairman it is your job to rectify the situation.

The tyranny of the establishment has to end if the Republican party is going to continue to exist.  The current leadership of the NRSC is notnonly tone deaf-they are stupid.  Joe Scarborough?  I'm just stunned.

I can't see how 'Morning Joe' has a snowball's chance in Florida. He was chased off the radio dial via letter writing campaign in DC, for chrissake. And you'd think Cornyn would have learned something from the Charlie Crist debacle. I guess RINOs have thick skulls and small brains.
