Of course, this does not mean conservatives should withhold their money from all elections. There are alternatives. They can contribute to individual candidates. They can contribute to a variety of PACs that support conservative candidates. They can contribute to the Senate Conservatives Fund, or, of course, the Club for Growth, without which Hoffman would have possibly never gathered any real momentum.

But enough with the blind contributions to the Republican Party, and with the blind voting for establishment-backed candidates. That the establishment attempts to save face every time it loses, at it is doing now by supporting Hoffman two days before the election, should not blind anyone from the fact that only hours ago, it was throwing money at a genuine leftist while trashing Hoffman, and that in the coming months, it will be supporting a decidedly non-conservative Charlie Crist over a perfectly conservative and perfectly electable Marco Rubio in the Florida Republican Senate primary.
