    The Tea-Baggers tend to like social conservatives that you've probably never heard of like Bob Marshall and Ken Cuccinelli.  

    The Tea-Baggers tend to identify Allen -- correctly -- as a career politician.

    I think there's also some resentment over the fact that he cost himself the seat in 2006.  No one will say that, but it's kind of like what some Tea-Baggers say about George W. Bush.  Honestly, I don't think they have reservations about him because of his policies, they have reservations about him, because he became unpopular and cost the GOP elections.
