Interesting comment about punches and bad names:

"McConnell is playing hardball. The GOP leader, who privately has said the groups need a punch in the nose and publicly has said they are "giving conservatism a bad name," has backed up his words with action."

Maybe this autopsy will be called marriage counseling!

Eventually the GOP will figure out that these groups, including the Tea party and the Fox Propaganda Channel have been more of a detriment, than a plus.......Hard to also keep denying this Economic Health......

We have the progressive Dems who are lovers of Joe Stalin while left wing Repubs are compared to Barry Goldwater by the same. No wonder conservative Repubs are attacked. Of course the progressive system won't last, but the tyranny laws will.

Let's hope so; their closet fascism will lose them the next couple of elections and make them even more irrelevant as a party!

The Teabaggers and fellow nutballs will soon be relegated to the wilds of Idaho with their brethren in the White Supremacy movement.

Obviously Progressives hate Communism as they do fascism. Obvious to anyone but a moron like you, at least.

You are a communist. You are a fascist. You can only get yours by forcing others to suffer. There is no debate. You take from your neighbors, insulting, slandering and destroying them by laws while you whine...the rich, the rich, the rich. And many of you are rich!

It really depends on how many Taxed Enough Already backed Congressmen, and Senators are elected in 2014, and 2016 to see which faction has the most influence. Americans are tired of liberals and Conservatives. They want people who understand the Constitution, and will follow it. It isn't complicated. I know Democrats have a problem with our governing Constitution, but that is only because they don't understand it. As our governmental structure is sorted out they too will come to follow it.

I believe you mean that last sentence. And you're telling us to agree with you and beware Saul Alinsky? You need to be chained to your cot.

I've noticed your championing "real conservatism" before. What would you say are the qualities of a "real conservative"?

The Tea Bags in Congress should feel jilted, the Republicans milked the cow for a majority in 2010 and now want's to put the heffa back in the barn now she's all dried out.

The Tea Bags are good enough to sit with in a dark movie, but she is not a prom princess.

This is a common always the Bride's Maid and never the Bride scenario.

What's it come down to in straight talk is the Country Club Republicans those with the funding consider the Tea Bags and the Dish washing base Republicans beneath them and an embarrassment when let off their chains.

So now that the establishment Republicans are feed up what are the 30 Tea Bags in Congress going to do now? There's nobody left for you to leech off of to make anything on the Tea Bag agenda legitimate. The Tea Bags now have a 51% Disapproval rating with Americans and therefore the Country Club GOP wants to dump you now you aren't considered an asset in the next election.
