All post-election spin is stupid but some completely plausible spins never get spun

When Democrats don't do well in an election why are all the post-mortem stories the same every time? It's always about how the Democrats need to cater more to moderates and blah blah blah. Republicans didn't cater to their moderates when they lost last year. They chased, and are still chasing, their moderates (to the extent there are still any left) out of the party! Why isn't anyone saying that the fact that Republicans won so many upsets this week by ignoring moderates suggests that Democrats would win if they do the same thing?
