  •  Potential unholy alliance (0+ / 0-)

    Seems to me that the newly elected Tea Partiers might want to get something done in the upcoming Congress.  From their expressions of anger, they strike me as possible allies in countering the influence of Wall Street and the forces opposed to liberty.  Perhaps Democratic legislation to reverse corporate influence on Washington might get enough bi-partisan support from Tea Party freshmen to come to a vote in the House and overcome BlueDog votes for the status quo. At minimum,  their support might increase divison within the GOP.  And, without their support, it might show the Tea Party that their new leaders have sold them out.
