If the tea-party candidates are so extreme, why are they so popular?
Good article on the Tea Party and how the MSM is misreading the narrative. If the pubbies take the House and Senate the Tea parties will be very important to holding their feet to the fire to make sure the establishment pubbies don't go on to just more the pork around.
The funny thing is the party establishment fear the "tea Party" candidates almost as much as the dems. THis in and of itself is a good reason to get these folks into office.
If by “GOP” one means the party establishment that has controlled Congress and the national party since at least the Bush era, this group of insurgent candidates represents a significant threat. There’s a reason why the tea-party Republicans had to run against their own party leadership.
Just look at where the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) and its House counterpart put their muscle. While it was understandable that the NRSC would stick with incumbents like Murkowski and Bennett, it also backed Trey Greyson in Kentucky, Jane Norton in Colorado, and Lowden in Nevada, and stood with Charlie Crist in Florida right up to the moment that he ditched the party.
"Some guys play in all-star games, some guys don't. I don't know who picks all those all-star teams. In all honesty, I don't know who picks the combine, for that matter," Belichick said. "How does (Miami-Ohio offensive lineman Brandon) Brooks not get invited to the combine? How did Vollmer not get invited to the combine? I don't know. We can't really worry about that. We just have to try to evaluate them the best we can."
