To listen to the elites whine about last Tuesday's primary election results in which Tea Party candidates trumped those selected by the Republican establishment, you would think there had been a death in the family. Moderates are an endangered species, whines columnist E.J. Dionne, among others.

The left loves a Republican moderate because they often vote with Democrats on taxes, spending and social issues. You never hear them praising Democrat moderates who vote with Republicans.
Here's what the left hates about conservatives and why they react the way they d they hate our faith, they hate our independence from government. They hate that we went to different schools than they did, read different books and have different ideas. If we don't live in New York, Washington or Los Angeles, we are flyover country to them.
That's the real reason for the whining and hand-wringing by our liberal friends. Got it?
