    So said Harvard professor Theda Skocpol in her piece in The New York TImes:

    "Until Republicans move toward the middle ground in important policy areas and cooperate with Democrats to accomplish what most Americans want, we cannot say that the Tea Party is dead or dying. Tea Party forces do not have to be popular or win most elections to maintain their extremist grip on one of America’s two great political parties.”

    I had lots of fun finding these kinds of thoughts and writing them in a post on my own website, politicalmurder.com.
