Wow, Michael Lind was so anxious to display his utter ignorance that he couldn't restrain himself for any longer than it took to write the second sentence in order to unleash it.
Evidently he missed some clues along the way, such as the election of Senator Scott Brown, the election of Senator Kelly Ayotte, etc. etc.
But evidently he isn't one of those neanderthal sticklers for accuracy who would allow facts to get in the way of his foolish pet theories...
Yeah, Scott Brown, I was going to mention him.
Brown has been a huge disappointment as a senator, shifting as he did to full-bore RINO mode almost as soon as he was sworn in, but the ONLY reason he was elected is Tea Party support.
In fact, if I am not mistaken, he represents the earliest actual Tea Party victory.
Doesn’t matter. The article is pure dem-o-rat projection.
