    seems like the Tea Party has been shooting blanks....I knew they didnt have the infrastructure,funding or game plan for the long haul...seems to me that a lot of "their candidates" are getting beat ..in the beginning their premise and platform had some merit, but I think they were too extreme even for conservatives like me, and the candidates were so quick to wrap themselves in the Tea Party flag, when in reality they had no substance
    If you read the thread about Ruling Class v. Country Class, it gives some insight into why the Tea Party is very heterogeneous. While the Republicans and Democrats have become homogeneous (both in their parties & in relation to each other), those who may associate themselves with the Tea Party are more diverse.

    Hey Bon,
    Still thinking the fad is over after last night?

    if the reps and tea party come together it will be bad for dems. l think it is funny right now that the GOP is split, but it is going to scare the heck out of them when the reps come around to the tea party.

    I agree with that 100%. I think a lot of establishment republicans, like Mitch McConnell are looking in the mirror today and wondering what they see.

    At the primary level, does this represent an anti-establishment, kick the bums out attitude, or is it an ideologic move to the right? I think well need to wait until the general elections in November to sort that out.

    This situation also poses a real stategy dilemma for dems. Do they go full out with an issue-based campaing.......or do they go negative against the likes of Angle, or just sit back and let them do the talking, and hopefully hang themselves politically, which they seem to have a talent for.

    From the tea party camps, I suspect there will be many narrated anti-incumbent, anti-big spending ads, but very little exposure-type events for their candidates for the above reason.

    One thing for sure, politics won't be boring from here until November.

    these are primaries and in some states closed primaries...what the Tea Party has shown is that they MAY fracture the Republican Primary..what also remains to be seen is if the rank and file Republican Party throw$$$ their support to the Tea Party candidates...speaking strictly here in NV one of the Rep. party candidates Angle defeated ( Tarkanian ) has thrown his support behind her, but the other (Lowden who was the head of the NV Rep Party) hasnt lifted a finger to help defeat Reid...

    if the Tea Party can win in a general election and they help flush the RINO's from the Rep.Party then I am all for it, but if they split the vote or are too extreme right then what happens...

    And Rangel wins the Dem primary ... over 5 rivals. It's really sad when Rangel is the people's choice. Nothing much is changing in NYC, it would appear.

    Thats the history of the democratic party. Remember the mayor of D.C. Marion Barry? He was a thief and a drug addict that they kept electing term after term.
