GOP Elite Declares War on Tea Party

Ladies and gentlemen, there’s a big piece in the New York Times Magazine coming this weekend. It is entitled: “Does Anyone Have a Grip on the GOP?” The subhead: “The Republican Elite Tries to Take Its Party Back.” This article prints like 24 pages. It is a major, major New York Times Magazine piece. It confirms everything that I have thought, everything I have speculated, everything I have said about the battle between the Republican elite and the Tea Party.

I can’t read the whole thing on the program; I don’t intend to. I’ve got some highlights or quotes that are illustrative here, but this is an open declaration of war from the GOP elites to the Tea Party, and it’s right there in the New York Times. And these Republican establishment types are more than willing to be quoted by name, and what I think it all means is they think that they’ve beaten the Tea Party hordes back. Do you realize that Chuck Schumer and a bunch of Democrats are running around campaigning now against the Tea Party. The Tea Party poses the greatest threat to this country. The Tea Party is a bunch of racist, sexist bigots. This is the message and the Republican elite, while not joining word for word that message, are still joining with the Democrats in the notion that the Tea Party is a problem and needs to be beaten back.
