Now the powers that be in the republican party, in layman's terms, that means the multi millionaires who used to bankroll the "tea party", have decided that enough is enough. They now have realized how crazy the true believers are and are working to bottle them back up. The problem is, you can not but the toothpaste back in its tube. These loons are now running around and about to turn their insanity towards the republican party itself.
This story hit from RedState and the remaining 30 "tea partiers" are very upset!
The Wisconsin Tea Party movement is not gelling to Tommy Thompson who presumed he would have an easy nomination to be Wisconsin’s next Republican Senator. Tea Party activists have rallied against him in Wisconsin and now the state party seems poised to shut out a group that has been so helpful in battling the recall efforts there.Forgetting of course that Tommy Thompson was one of the featured speakers at numerous "tea party" events, and that they have just been a far right outreachof the republican party anyway. The real fun is that the "tea party" true believers actually think that they helped drive the debate the last two years in Wisconsin and the country.
According to several people I’ve spoken to on the ground there, the Wisconsin GOP is getting ready to disqualify hundreds of tea party activists as delegates to the state convention.
The GOP in Wisconsin changed its rules to make it easier for the party to endorse in primaries. One person tells me “it made sense for the establishment because typically 700 to 900 people go to the conventions and everyone knows everyone.” But then the Tea Party came to power and has flooded Wisconsin politics, driven, in part, by the union trying to roll back Scott Walker’s reforms.
This year, the Wisconsin GOP is on track for something like 2,000 delegates, which would be double the largest state convention. The majority of those are opposed to Tommy Thompson.
I believe the correct term while being played for fools by the Billionaires on the right, AFP and the Maciver institute is useful idiots!
Sit back, grab a Spotted Cow and some popcorn(just dont buy it from Robin Vos), this is going to be fun to watch.
