    The Tea Party will be history by then.  Will the Republicans have learned to commit to bipartisanship?  I doubt that.  But I'm still optimistic about this November.  When a good spanking is given out it will be interesting to see their response.  How does a bully react to a spanking?  Any therapists out there?

    •  They were spanked hard in 2008 (2+ / 0-)

      They reacted by totally losing control of their party to the Teabaggers, basically full scale in your face, out in public self-destruction.  

      Today's crop of GOP candidates are short term thinking ultra rich self-funded candidates who are playing to low hanging xenophobia and racism for votes because they don't give a flying frack about the long term health of the party.  They just want to get elected to enrich themselves more -- Vultures if you ask me.

        but I feel like it is different this time.  They've gone so far out they'll lose even more except for those with their heads in the ground.
