    You just gotta love those earmark bans. Does the Tea Party approve of this?

    What say you, Tea Partiers? Is this what you voted for?

    Mark Kirk is a member of the GOP. The Tea Party is the extreme right wing of said GOP. What part of this equation are you missing?

    The Tea Party will not be concerned unless Fox News tells them to be so

    Shifting money around from those who produce to those who vote is a vital survival mechanism for these folks.

    It is imperative that the heat be kept on that this is unacceptable in any form. This is not a republican-tea party vs Dem issue, it is the nation vs the aristocracy issue.

    Doesn't matter what his party affiliation is. He needs to hear that we don't like it, and we will continue to keep the heat on, and he better not just talk the talk, but walk the walk, he will be walking to the unemployment line.
