Michael Barone wrote about the effects the Tea Party movement is having on Washington D.C., lets hope that the democrats will feel the effects when they’re voted out of congress in November!
It’s not clear whether the tea partiers’ influence on Republicans will last as long as the antiwar cohort’s imprint on Democrats. But their concern the fact that government spending is on a trajectory to increase far beyond revenues seems likely to persist. In which case a spontaneous movement that no one predicted and that no one person led could end up, again, reshaping one of our great political parties. SOURCE
