So let me understand this. The same Tea Party that lost the five to six Senate seats that would have given them leverage in the recent budget battle has tortured the American people with this Washington performance art.
It is sad to imagine that Republicans are frightened of being beaten in primaries by the faction that nominated Todd Aiken, Christine O'Donnell and Richard Mourdock. The Tea Party constitutes the new "not ready for prime time players" and should not be given the keys to govern.
