John Cornyn Should Resign As Head Of The NRSC

We have a primary shaping up in Florida between Charlie Crist, a pro-stimulus, pro-amnesty, Arlen Specter style “Republican” and Marco Rubio[1], a young, Hispanic, anti-amnesty conservative who was the Speaker of the Florida House of Representatives for the 2007 and 2008 legislative sessions.

Admittedly Crist, who’s the current governor, is the heavy favorite — but, that wasn’t enough for John Cornyn at the National Republican Senatorial Committee. In a repeat of the sort of stupidity that the GOP engaged in back in 2004 in Pennsylvania (Specter vs. Toomey), Cornyn and the NRSC[2] are actually endorsing a guy who will end up voting against the GOP half the time if he gets in the Senate — over a credible conservative candidate.

If I told you what I really think about that, it would mostly involve a long series of F-bombs and John Cornyn’s name. So, rather than go that way, let me just say this.

I would encourage you not to give the National Republican Senatorial Committee one thin dime of your money unless John Cornyn resigns. If they send you a letter asking for money or call you asking for money, let them know that they’re not getting anything from you unless John Cornyn is gone and they stop interfering in Republican primary races.

If you want to support conservatives, there are plenty of places where you can put your money, but one of them is not the NRSC, which, as far as I am concerned, can buy an ad on RWN if they want another kind word here before the 2010 election.

Update #1: The first ad of the Rubio vs. Crist race.

Update #2: The worst Senate Minority Leader in the history of the Republican Party, Mitch McConnell[3], has now endorsed Crist. Can endorsements from Kathleen Parker and Colin Powell be far behind at this point?
