He may be correct, although I have my doubts about Thad Cochran in Mississippi. I did my part by voting for John Cornyn, who won here in Texas.

Go TurtleMan!

Don't forget to see them driven before you, and listen for the lamentations of their women.

Good luck with that.

No, really.

The Tea Party influence will still be strong and force the conversation too far to the loony, extreme right. There is no voice of reason within the Republican party now with the sole exception of Meghan McCain who is not even an elected official.

They'll win something. The only question is will they win enough to continue being a problem.

Watching the Republican party destroy itself from the inside out is great entertainment...it's almost like they have completely forgot about the fact that there is an election after the primary.

Republicans take their dregs and create the Tea Party...

"Mitch McConnell is clearly in trouble in this primary or he wouldn't be attacking Matt Bevin and declaring war on conservatives," Matt Hoskins, the head of the SCF, told the New York Times.

Oh man.

Oh man oh man.

FTA: "Mr. McConnell's ad, his first singling out the Senate Conservatives Fund, raises a criticism that Speaker John A. Boehner and other Republicans have leveled at the activists - that they are fund-raising and business enterprises more than political operations. The ad refers to unnamed news media reports that assert that the PAC "solicits money under the guise of advocating for conservative principles but then spends it on a $1.4 million luxury townhouse with a wine cellar and hot tub in Washington, D.C." "


So... they're simultaneously accusing tea party groups of massive political and financial shady dealings and pitching a fit that the IRS would dare to question anything any tea party group claimed about its financial and political dealings.

Way too many Teabaggers already in office are going to stay there, entrenched and dug in thanks to gerrymandered districts and anti-voter laws that allow nearly unlimited and undisclosed campaign money to be funneled into their accounts. Getting rid of them is going to take a big turnout by Democrats in an off-year, and I just don't see that taking place unless the Republicans really screw things up between now and November.

The last I heard from young Ms. McCain, she wasn't exactly happy about the Republican war on women's access to health care. I suspect she may leave the party sooner or later.

Actually, I sort of hope McConnell gets Daschled as a casualty of this anti-Tea Party movement.

/I don't have much hope for Boehner or Cantor in the house, but McConnell is doable.

Now we just have to break the Democrats and maybe we can start fixing things around here.

The Democrats are perfectly capable of squabbling themselves into impotence without any outside help.
Be careful what you wish for, and take things slow. The Grey Suit/ Teabagger wars are enough excitement for right now.

My suggestions for Tea Party primary candidates and the senators they should replace; all of these new candidates will much more closely reflect the will and desires of their constituents, unlike the libby-lib-libs who currently hold those seats:

Lord Tywin Lannister to replace Mitch McConnell

Great Cthulhu to replace Saxby Chambliss

The reanimated corpses of Strom Thurmond and Jesse Helms fused as one vengeful entity to replace Lindsey Graham

Alex Jones to replace John Cornyn

If "sticking it to the libs" is wrong, they don't want to be right.

This just falls in line with current conservative ideology, If it isn't for profit and personal gain but for the betterment of the many, then it is socialism.

There is no party called "tea" so it probably won't win any elections.

You know when a panicked rat on a sinking ship runs all over the place looking for something that floats? That's the mentality of the American people that got tea partiers into office.

The wealthy are skimming all the profits of productivity for themselves while offshoring whatever jobs they can. The rentseekers are double down on the cost of everything they control. The deregulated industries are destroying even the little environment around these people's houses that they have left. Healthcare is bleeding whatever else is left in the corpse of the US.

These people don't see who is responsible for their declining lifestyle, but they do see their neighours. Some of whom happen to be a colour other than they are. They also see people using SNAP cards, and see whiny children at the mall.

It's so easy to construct a propaganda model about the "people who annoy us". THESE are the people that politicians learn can be blamed.

Hence, The Tea Party. It's not reality, it's a propaganda model that morons will swallow as truth.

I guess....  If government shut-downs, obstruction, childish temper tantrums, and all that other bullshiat Republicans have been trying to pull to keep the teatards happy could be considered awesome, then sure.  It's just been a real peach of a time.

Noam Chimpsky: There is no party called "tea" so it probably won't win any elections.


Wait, I thought the tea party was an independent grassroots bipartisan movement of people concerned about spending. At least, that's what I was told everytime someone suggested it was just an astroturf operation of the GOP so people could suddenly act concerned over government spending without being laughed at for unquestionably backing one of the most financially wasteful administrations in U.S. history.

It just so happens that every candidate who claims to represent the teabaggers (their word, not mine. Ain't my fault no one checked urban dictionary first) runs as a Republican.

That's nice, Turtle Boy... Too bad it was you assholes who unleashed these teabagging morons on the country.

Some might forget that. I won't. I'll actively vote and work against every farking Republican at every opportunity available to me.

You can put every Republican on a barge, float it out into the Atlantic and scuttle it for all I care anymore.
 
2014-03-10 06:54:43 AM
I'm torn. I want to see the Tea Party exposed. I also want the guy go down who decided that America deserved obstruction as long as it elected Obama. Is there a way for both to go down in flames.

The GOP smells blood in the water with the Dems weak in the Senate and miles from winning the House. The TP's backers will pull their money and the baggers will fold like a cheap tent.

When established incumbents have to dig deep into the war chests to fend off teabagger primary opponents that's a lot of money that can't be brought to bear in states with legitimate general election fights, and look what happened last time around in Delaware, Nevada and Indiana. When's the last time the GOP had to wage aggressive primary campaigns in Kentucky, Mississippi or Kansas?

The teabaggers are helping the Democrats in every possible way.

Glad to see the GOP has to put so much effort into stomping down on their own pet fringe-group.  Keeps them busy so they can't devote that effort to beating a Democrat.

Thanks, teabaggers!
