...even John Boehner and News Gingrich are way too far to the left for them. I never thought I'd see the day when I started a thread defending those two, but check this out. and Um...wow?? Is that how far the tea party has gone? Guys on their own side are truthful with them and/or take a couple of moderate-right positions, and they go bonkers? For the record, I don't know that Boehner is right about the budget. Of course it won't get back under control overnight, but it sounds like his estimates are predicated on the false assumption that we can get away without raising anybody's taxes. Anyway, this is a sad commentary on the condition of American politics. God help us if we don't start de-electing these fanatics.
