Republicans have been wrangling for more than a year over how exactly to handle the tea party movement, but now Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) is bringing them under the big tent.
The House Administration committee, which usually takes days to approve something of this nature, approved Bachmann's request to create a House Tea Party Caucus in a day. It will certainly give the national movement a more official voice within the House Republican Conference.
Bachmann, already a hero within the tea party, sent a letter to House Administration Chairman Robert Brady (D-Pa.) Thursday to register the House Tea Party Caucus to serve as an “informal group of members dedicated to promote Americans’ call for fiscal responsibility, adherence to the Constitution and limited government.”
You mean Caribou Barbie’s psycho sister!?
And the last Tea Party event I attended was here in Orlando and had a discussion with a gentlemen in the crowd, as a local Tea Party organizer was speaking. "The organizer was telling the folks," we need to get the dems out of office and put the republicans back to thier rightful place!" Thats when me and this fellow Libertarian left and went to the local watering hole.

So what happened to the grassroots Tea Party? It never existed! It always belonged to the Republican establishment, now it is openly official because now it is the establishment. Any surprises here?

This is why the Dem will lose big time in November. Character attacks instead of discussing the issues. But that is what the Dem party has descended into, unfortunately.
The Dem's will lose in November but blaming them for not discussing the issues is hypocritical and you know it. No party discusses the issues.
Rush, the real leader of the GOP only trashes the opposition and dosen't discuss the issues.
But I will be damned if I will be a part of something that WILL (mark my words) become part of one of the 2 institutional pseudoparties.
