Walking wounded

They're just now figuring this out?

Shellshocked House Republicans got warnings from leaders past and present Tuesday: Your party's message isn't good enough to prevent disaster in November, and neither is the NRCC's money.

The double shot of bad news had one veteran Republican House member worrying aloud that the party's electoral woes — brought into sharp focus by Woody Jenkins' loss to Don Cazayoux in Louisiana on Saturday — have the House Republican Conference splitting apart in “everybody for himself” mode.

I know what Republicans and conservatives should stand for, but I have no idea what these clowns stand for. That's the problem, isn't it? And going into an "everybody for himself" mode will just compound the problem.
