THE TEA PARTY, REVISITED: Sean Trende’s interesting take over at RealClearPolitics. I tend to agree with his assessment. Division within the Republican ranks isn’t a new phenomenon (we are a diverse bunch, after all), and tea party candidates have been about as good as establishment candidates, in terms of avoiding gaffes. Plus tea party candidates have the benefit of being outsiders, not professional politician-wanna-bes, which is always refreshing.
