Tea Party candidates suffered defeats in yesterday's primaries in Indiana, Ohio, and North Carolina, but are enjoying varying degrees of success in Florida, Kentucky, and Utah. It's going to be an interesting election season to watch.
I'm not saying the Tea Party wackadoodles shouldn't be exposed by the Left, to show the lunacy and nastiness being openly displayed by some Tea Partiers. But it doesn't mean the movement itself is solely comprised of such gadflies.
November 2008 is just behind us, but the parties are both gearing up for what promises to be a critical midterm election in 2010. 34 Senators, 36 Governors, and all 435 members of the House will face re-election.
