    Senate Tea Party Caucus Holds First Meeting

    Senate Tea Party Caucus Holds First Meeting - NYTimes.com

    ...on Thursday it became official: Senator Jim DeMint of South Carolina, the Tea Party patron, and the freshmen senators Rand Paul of Kentucky and Mike Lee of Utah held the first official gathering of the Senate Tea Party Caucus.

    And the three Republicans quickly picked up a new recruit: Senator Ron Johnson, Republican of Wisconsin.

    But other newly elected Republican senators have refused to join, including some who had Tea Party support in the fall campaign...

    If he wasn't allowed in, they'd only have 3 members?

    If they are going to poison their own caucus with big spending republicans just so they can have more power in the upper chamber...you know...basically what the GOP did back in the day...then **** it. Might as well just go home and BECOME the republican party.

    Are we allowed to address the Tea Party as a single entity now? Because for all the accountability Tea Party supporters seem to be bitching about, I've yet to see anybody in the Tea Party actually take responsibility for what the supporters do.

    Are these three individuals their hierarchy? The Tea Party needs a Michael Steele.

    We all know that Rush Limbaugh is the unofficial Republican spokesidiot. But, the presence of Michael Steele allows for plausible deniability of that fact.
