  •  In 2010 I had a convo with a repug Hill staffer. (1+ / 0-)

    He works for an establishment GOP Senator.  I asked him how he felt about the influence of the TP on conservative politics.  Shockingly, he said "oh we love the TP!"  Their view was that the TP was breathing life into the GOP and getting out the vote. In the short term that was true.  

    I raised the point that the TP are rather extreme and that they're going to want their agenda followed, moderates be damned.  Basically, I told him that the GOP had created the proverbial Frankenstein and that it was a matter of time before it started fucking up the lab.  He scoffed and said they'd toe the line once in office and all would be right with the GOP world.

    Waiting for 2014 to send him a "told ya so sucka!"
