I think they're getting the hint

Do I sense a real fundamental change ahead for the loyal opposition? Here's a quote from the Politico:

Already Tuesday night, angry conservatives hinted of retaliation against their party leaders.

"Republicans suffered very serious setbacks in the last two years in both the Senate and the House," said Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.), a thorn in McConnel's side for months. "We have got to clean up, reform and rebuild the Republican Party before we can ask Americans to trust us again. This must begin with either a change of command at the highest levels or our current leaders must embrace a bold new direction."

"Republicans must admit the Wall Street bailouts were a trillion-dollar bust, and immediately fight for free-market solutions that create jobs and increase freedom," DeMint said. "This election reflects a failure of Republicans to keep their conservative promises."

To paraphrase a wise man: "It only took 50 lost Congressional seats, the loss of the presidency and an approval rating in the teens and I changed at the snap of a finger."
