|Subject: TEA PARTY FREIGHT TRAIN! Thu 02 Sep 2010, 7:47 am|| |
The tea party freight train is roaring down the track, and GOP insiders should hop aboard or move out of the way.
"We have gone toe-to-toe with the establishment," said grassroots organizer Brendan Steinhauser of FreedomWorks. "We have won. 'We' is a big we. It's all the grass-roots folks out there in Utah, Colorado, Alaska, Florida, and everywhere else… The tea party movement is not going away."
Joe Miller's stunning win over GOP Sen. Lisa Murkowski in Alaska ….. is only the latest tea party-supported insurgent to win against the GOP's "official" candidate.
Against the national GOP's anointed favorites, the tea party has racked up extraordinary victories: Rand Paul in Kentucky, Ken Buck in Colorado, Sharron Angle in Nevada, Mike Lee in Utah, and Marco Rubio in Florida, to name just a few.
Some grass-roots conservatives have expressed frustration that even in races without an incumbent Republican, the Republican establishment has favored moderates over devout conservatives. Michael Tanner, the Cato Institute senior fellow and author of “Leviathan on the Right: How Big-Government Conservatism Brought Down the Republican Revolution,” commented: "You're finding that in race after race the establishment here in Washington has put their weight behind moderate, establishment candidates, people who have a history of elective office, people who in their judgment 'can win.'
"I think they're misjudging the electoral mood right now," he said.
