As much as I might wish that Michelle Bachmann, Sarah Palin, and the rest of the Tea Party would simply fall into a black hole, never to re-emerge, that's not going to happen unless these yahoos are voted out of office. Their meat-axe approach to the budget is inexcusable, as was shown this past week when public outrage over the furloughs of air traffic controllers and Federal meat inspectors forced the Tea Party controlled House of Representatives to reverse their sequester and restore funds for these critical government services. Now, how about restoring full funding for Head Start, school lunches for poor children, aid to veterans, and other critical government services? Want to live someplace where there is no effective central government and low taxes? How about moving to Somalia or some other Third World hellhole? It's time to dump the Tea Party!
