That was a question that many conservative supporters and establishment candidates asked the Democrats. Would it not be funny if the Democrats now ask the Republican establishment the Same question? I mean really--if we seperate the two, it looked like the Tea Party bludgeoned the Republican party, took their candy and their toys and told them to brag about their beating!! Take a look--the vast majority of the candidates that won in the Republican primaries were backed by the Tea Party. Candidates that (established)Republicans said they would not support if they won were quickly embraced to present the appearance of "party unity". In fact, even candidates that did not seem a least bit conservative were able to defeat long standing, multi-year profession republican politicians with only a handful of dollars in their pockets. Were the Republicans routed by grassroot revolutionaries, or did the Republican Establishment sit down for a spot of Tea? Well, in any case, the Tea party is about to finally test their mettle against a party that don't give a damn about conservatism and still win elections. That is right, the Tea Party now has to down that Beast of the Apocalypse, the Democrat Party! With their hell-spawn legions of over sensitive liberals, eco-warriors, and Obamaniacs, the Tea Party is facing a 500 pound juggernaut in a steel cage match! Ohhh liberals---Are you now afraid of the Tea party? Make you wish you did not pass that Healthcare Bill! You betcha!
