The teabaggers are complete morons and rebels without clues. If the GOP looses hold of this tiger’s tail and they take over, then all of those smug corporate elites who run things are going to have a hard time of things when the rest of America decides that the teabags are too wacky for prime time.
I am sure that in certain states with high rates of inbreeding and low rates of secondary education, the bags will make for a frothing regional party. But they will be easily set aside on the national scale.
Of course, this assumes that the Dems grow a spine and learn to fight.
If they don’t, all bets are off.
