Before today's debt vote, Harry Reid took to the Senate floor once again to take a shot at new tea party backed Senate freshmen. Funny coming from a man who called the tea party "irrelevant" earlier this year.

I think with the economy getting better, you’re going to see less and less agitation from the Tea Party folks.”
“The country doesn’t care much about the Tea Party,” Reid said Wednesday.
