    Angle is quite viable.

    Note the trend folks, there are exactly TWO Republican females in office that I know of that people like liblady and the news sources she visits thinks are sane, intelligent good people.

    Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins.

    All others? The less likely they are to support or vote with Democrats, the "crazier" they are.

    Sure, Angle has made a few mistakes, she holds some strong views... and?

    She'll beat Harry, and you'll scream about the crazy "Desert lady" for months.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    And like you care about the Tea Party, spare us the false support.

    Four primary elections, one of which was for governor so who cares, and the Tea Party is finished? And the article provides no reason to say that Paul and Angle are under-performing against their Democratic opponents. I haven't seen the polls so that may be true, but this article is hardly convincing as in spelling doom and gloom for the Tea Party. Hell, even the article admits that Palin's endorsement was worth 16 points to one candidate.

    The point is twofold...one...there IS no Tea Party as a political entity with candidates.

    And two...The "Tea Party" are fiscal conservatives. They are social policy conservatives. My guess is that when you strip away the party labels its not unlike people and their position re the libertarian platform MOST people want smaller more effective and more efficient government. And SADLY...thats viewed as a radical posture...one to be ridiculed.

    Ridiculed of course NOT in comparison to the train wrech that is the current two party system.
