Let's hear it for the Tea Party. They make our lives much happier.
As a progressive liberal I would like to thank them for all the crazy things they say and do. It makes life much easier for sane people to get a few things accomplished. And here's hoping they keep it up until the election in 2016. We want them around to argue that women should restrain their libido and that a fetus the size of a small ant is a person and has rights, but Hispanic immigrants do not.
Let them support more guns for killing and keep their undertones of homophobia. And let them rebel against the laws of the land, such as the Affordable Care Act and the right to abortion. After all, what are laws, backed by the Constitution? Go ahead, filibuster away and turn your backs on the Constitution and the majority of the people of the United States and see how far you get in the general election. We welcome you, we want you and we thank you.
