Random Political Analogy Part 2: The Republican Tea Party Victory is to the 2010 Election as the Notorious Purple Smurf is to Red State America
The Smurfs: has there ever been a children's television cartoon series as twisted and subversive?
Sometimes you have to laugh to keep from crying. I have something more substantial coming later today. But in the near term, the results of the Republican rout of the Democrats reminded me of the truism that sometimes the American people don't get what they want or what they need. Instead, they get exactly what they deserve.
Now, the lemmings who followed the Tea Party GOP off the ledge on Tuesday are going to get exactly what they wished for. The question becomes, will they have buyer's remorse come election day 2012?
