They’ve misread the tea leaves, so to speak. It may be true that people running for Congress aren’t touting their association with the Tea Party anymore, but that is because they don’t have to. After 2010, the Republican Party, at least as far as the House is concerned, IS the Tea Party. We’re no longer an outside group trying to get in, so referring to the Tea Party as an outside affiliation is becoming increasingly irrelevant.
Tomorrow the not so dead Tea Party is going jump all over Barack Obama’s ass and go Cock-a-Doodle Do! Cannot wait for Hurricane Tea Party!!!
