Yet another update. From The New American, today:

Distressingly for Republicans craving a return to conservatism on the
part of party leadership, Cornyn all but ignored the shots Kaine took
at those active in the Tea Party movement (Kaine actually called it
the *“Tea Bag Party”*). He wanly disregarded the possibility that
conservatives might hijack the GOP and surrender the middle ground to
slavering Democrats just waiting to gobble up the meaty middle.

OT: "wanly"? "slavering"? Certainly, neither word presents a problem,
in general, but, it seems, they don't mean what Joe Wolverton II
thinks they mean.
