    Cain is running as a republican.

    If the squishes and neocons don't like it, they can always go run as democratics.

    I wouldn't bet much on it, although it wouldn't completely be a surprise if that happened.

    If the GOP tosses a few not-completely-meatless bones the TP's way in the next two years, they'll have bought that faction's loyalty in 2012. Never underestimate the right's ability to come together against a common enemy.

    There isnt going to be a third party. At least not on the right.

    Far more likely than a third party on the left. They share one brain collectively.

    That worked out very well for Democrats last November, didn't it? The Tea Party is uniting fiscal conservatives who abandoned the party, not splintering it. But I do like the incredible ability of the left to see things the way they want to see them rather then how they are even after having their heads handed to them. Rock on my friend. Not dealing with reality will take you down several more pegs next November. Then Obama can apply for his unemployment checks.

    You're right. But now the TP'ers are DEMANDING the GOP address all of rtheir own concerns.

    1) They've already met and straw polled who THEY want as THEIR candidate as seen in the OP. Of course they picked a Republican but what happens if THEIR pick doesn't win the nomination?

    2) They already gave THEIR OWN response to the SOTU address.

    3) They've already targeted three GOP Senators for defeat.

    The Associated Press: Tea party out to defeat 3 longtime GOP senators

    They're saying that the GOP will play THEIR way or suffer the consequences.

    What you plainly have here is a two headed conservative monster bent on devouring itself.

    Nearly complete? There has always been a 3rd or 4th or even 5th party. The problem is that nobody wants to join them.

    clearly, you've never been in the company of actual democrats. you've only associated with the pretend ones in your head.
