Tea Party: The revolution is over

Just call the Tea Party the CB Radio of this year’s political circus, a fad that is fading fast, a crackpot idea whose time never was and now is disappearing faster than Sarah Palin’s credibility.

Three Tea Party candidates went down in flames in the Virginia primaries Tuesday, beaten to a pulp by established candidates.

A new Washington Post-ABC News poll shows 50 percent of Americans now view the Tea Party movement unfavorably — an 11 percent jump from just a couple of months ago.  Most Americans now correctly believe the Tea Party movement is controlled by loons.

Turn off the tea pot, the party’s over. Like so many so-called populist movements dominated by extremists, the Tea Party appears destined for a well-deserved place in the toxic waste dump of political sewage.
