HEY, TEA PARTY: YOU KNOW YOU’RE ON TOP WHEN EVERYONE IS TRYING TO TAKE YOUR PLACE: The tea party has been so successful in getting members of Congress elected that those members are now attracting specific, intensified opposition by labor and other progressive groups afraid of growing tea party prominence and power. Says Greg Sargent over at the Washington Post Plum Line:
Despite a surge of optimism a few weeks back, Democrats appear likely to fall short of winning back the House. But progressives are hoping that by knocking off a few prize Tea Partyers, they will help fuel the narrative that the Tea Party is on the wane.
Yeah, good luck with that narrative!
