Bennett Bounced

Senator Bob Bennett of Utah was denied renomination at the state Republican convention on Saturday. Bennett is an establishment Republican who supported the bailout, a mandate to buy health insurance, amnesty for illegal aliens, and big spending. Utah Republicans had enough and voted to send two more conservative candidates, Mike Lee and Tim Bridgewater, to the Republican primary.

Media reports stated that delegates were full of 'anti-incumbent rage'. They renominated plenty of other incumbents with no contest, but if you decide to vote for someone different, it must be RAAAAAGGGGGEEEEEEE!!!!! rather than just preferring a different candidate.
