    Tea Party Now a Huge GOP Liability

    Why does the GOP allow this small loud and stupid minority to continue to steer their ship into one shit storm after another?

    The TeaScum has already cost us a credit rating. They won't be happy until we're downgraded again.

    The TPM is in essence the Old Bush Base; the front men may be fiscal ‘conservatives’ but not far back in the ranks you’ll find the social conservatives, Christian fundamentalists, and fiscal extremists – the same extremists responsible for the credit rating downgrade.

    The TPM/Old Bush Base is the most energized, fanatical, and hyper-partisan of republicans – they call into the AM radio shows, contribute to all the rightist blogs, and post on internet message boards.

    They determine who is or isn’t a ‘RINO,’ and successfully intimidate the moderate Old Guard accordingly.

    Indeed, during recent elections the majority of TPM victims have been moderate republicans, not democrats.

    For example:

    And:

    The problem is further exacerbated by the fact that moderate republicans just don’t do ‘extremist,’ it’s simply not who they are – and they’re consequently paying the price.

    Why can't we all believe the exact same things like all the Democrats have to?

    That's it Tea Party people. Put away your copies of the Constitution because a radical sissie advocate says you are a liability to the party he loves (to hate).

    The GObP KNOWS that the pretend party has cost them dearly. Right now, they're a bunch of old white guys madly juggling fruitcakes.

    Isn't THAT an image!
