Tea Party Post-mortem

The stunning, over-reaching debacle that had been the Great Tea Party Coup Attempt of 2013 is now over.

It died, like the hog in the tunnel.

It succumbed to its own hubris and lost in the Senate, 81-18, and in the House 285-144.  Rep. Paul "Fuck the Poor" Ryan voted with the 144 other Republicans who thought that dragging the world into depression wasn't a Bad Thing.

Well, screw 'em.

A bicameral budget conference has to submit a budget report by December 13th, so until then:

Savor the sweet milk of their tears.
