The New York GOP’s decision to support a liberal over a conservative infuriated me, but the silence of a bunch of cowards and the support of Newt Gingrich has infuriated me even more. Where have they been these past eight months? Have they not witnessed the town halls? The rallies? Were they under a rock during the march on Washington? Do they think that simply being GOP renders them sacred or somehow places them under protection from criticism?

If so, they’re grossly mistaken.
