"Tea Party" victories in the Republican primaries.

Here's my take, which I'm not hearing on the news: Republicans are sick and tired of the Do-Nothing-Know-Nothing Party (aka "Republican Party") of the last few years and are sending them a message: "Get out." I have serious trouble believing any of the whackadoo Tea-Baggers will actually win, and I'm sure most of the Republican base is also aware of this.

So this is just the opposite of what the press is making of it: Tea-Party primary victories mean fewer Do-Nothing-Know-Nothing seats. It's a good day in politics!
