Voters in a New York Congressional district safe for Republicans reject a GOP candidate endorsing Paul Ryan's plan to turn Medicare over to profit-driven private insurers, and national media pile on.
Voters are fed up with Republican overreach, which should make the GOP even more nervous in Wisconsin, where Ryan's pal Scott Walker and some of his legislative lieutenants are on the path to recall.
And nationally, where extremists like Palin, Bachmann and the increasingly-reactionary Pawlenty evince that arrogant Ryanesque disconnect.
It wasn't widely publicized, but a Republican state legislator in Alabama, citing his party's overreaching, switched sides and is now a Democrat.
I like the trend. Thank you, Paul Ryan.
