Conservatives are constantly castigated about our desire to primary severe partisan defectors like Linc Chafee and Arlen Specter. But those guys have committed a list of political sins as long as my arm.
NY Democrats on the other hand, don't like Sen. Gillibrand's position on guns, and Rep. McCarthy is looking at a primary challenge.
Aside from the gun issue (where I'm sure she will find true religion when the votes come up, just as Casey has on abortion), it seems Gillibrand's biggest problem is that her first name isn't Carolyn or Caroline.
Gillibrand has the opportunity to hold that Senate seat forever and a day and bring a lot of power to New York, and certain Democrats are going to try to muck that up over small potatoes.
Who is the exclusive, petty, ideological party now?
