"Now we're stuck with each other?????" And who is "we"? You and the transvestite mouse in your pocket? There are millions of conservative voters in this country who are not definitely not 'stuck' with Karl Rove, the GOP, or the RINO establishment. 2012 was the big 'goodbye' to that bunch...

Andy, that's fine, but you know as well as I that the Tea Party is not going to win many elections at the national level if it tries to do so by itself. Like it or not, the Republican Party and the TP need each other.

Eric..... I have read your post and totally agree. I have no intention of trying to 'take over' the Republican Party. I have DEPARTED from the Republican Party. The Tea Party cannot 'meld' with the Republican power brokers, and vice versa. So long, farewell, auf weidersehen, good-bye.....

That's not true at all, and even if it was, the GOP won't win any major elections without the TP, the liberty movement, and true conservatives.

Andy,

Politics is about money. The "establishment" is where most of the Republican money is. They're neither going or away nor relinquishing power. The Tea Party may exert some influence, but they are not taking over the party any time soon.
If I were launching a new conservative venture, the last venue I'd choose for the announcement would be the New York Times. Karl Rove has gone to the Times to announce that he has created a new "conservative" entity "to recruit seasoned candidates and protect Senate incumbents from challenges by far-right conservatives and Tea Party enthusiasts."

Rove argues that Republican fortunes have been ruined by "far-right conservatives," but he's shamelessly calling this entity the "Conservative Victory Project." Yes, and I could call myself Ray Lewis, but it doesn't make it so.

Whaddaya know? The liberal Democrats at the Times love this idea....
