WASHINGTON – Chalk up another win for the tea party. And another embarrassment for the Republican establishment.

I am curious though. As good as these candidates that are backed by the tea party are doing why not make your own party once you got to congress or the senate? Make a real tea party call it that and everything.

This doesn't surprise me. What the GOP doesn't understand is that the Tea Party represents anti-Washington fever, not anti-Democrat or even anti-incumbent if the incumbent has proved that s/he works for the people and not the party line. The GOP thinks they can co-opt the movement as their own but they'll be surprised to learn that the Tea Party is not exactly GOP-lite.

And the liberal mainstream media trying to paint the TP as bigoted conservatives when they're clearly not doesn't get it either.

Go Tea Partiers.

Yeah right! Nothing but a gop spin off. You guys kill me, "the tea party is a new movement". Yeah, they move because BO is not white. What a joke. Theyll be gone in 20?? whenever the prez is white again. I promise you that.

They are not "embarrassed" as much as they are scared. They saw what happened when they nominated radical nutcases before. The loons are taking over the GOP and the GOP is powerless to do anything about it.
