The tea party folks are going off the Republican rails. This is exactly what the R’s don’t want; a fractured party.

They’re getting a fractured party anyway, since the non-wingnut Republicans are stuck either wincing in second-hand embarrassment over the Sharron Angle/Ken Buck types, or they’re choosing to distance themselves from the GOP altogether and say they’re independent.

Something’s got to give, and if these Teabagger types decide the GOP isn’t pure enough so they go off to their own little world, so much the better. It doesn’t do anyone any good when the only opposition to the party in power are the socons and the raving Tea Party lunatics. We need a sane voice on the right that doesn’t pander to those people, and if it takes letting these Teabaggers go, then so be it.

It’s a good bet that this November that fractured party’s bones knit together faster than a Hogwarts kid dosed with Skele-gro.

I understand that the title of your post is not yours. I simply want to make the point that if you want anyone whose iseas are different from yours, eg tea party followers, leading with a sexual slur does not help.

I, for one, stop reading right there as I assume that the writer has not enough respect for me for a two way conversation.

If I remember correctly, the tea party folks embraced the term teabagger for themselves, even without realizing there was any sexual meaning. If someone finds my use of that word offensive, that’s a personal issue.

Of course it is a personal issue. That there are a few uninformed people who have embraced the term, does that make it ok? Shall I apply the same standard to others? I think that most liberals would not be happy with that.

Since you have already shown a dismissive and disrespectful tone, conversation between us is impossible. Post what you will.

One last note, this is why we have such a large and apparently uncrossable divide in our politics today.
