"Republicans will lose if they support the (Paul) Ryan Medicare plan. Americans do not support the Ryan plan. Expect the GOP to then blame the Tea Party for losses."
-- South Florida Tea Party Chairman Everett Wilkinson in an e-mail sent to fellow tea party types and obtained by the Palm Beach Post
Cesca's response to this is pretty much on the money:
"Why shouldn’t they blame the Tea Party? ... The entire Republican party is to blame for their enabling of, and pandering to, the lowest common denominator, but that lowest common denominator is the Tea Party."
The unfortunate thing is that while the tea bagging insurgents have the ability to continue inflicting heavy damage on the GOP and its goal of unchecked power, in the end the shameless desire for that power will be too great and the party will come together for its own good. It always does.
