The Tea Partiers bagged their first senator today when Bob Bennett lost his bid to even appear on the ballot in November. In ten days, Arlen Specter may suffer the same humiliation at the hands of Pennsylvania’s mainstream Democrats. Sestak has moved ahead of him in the tracking poll. I’m all for tossing these folks out but it will make the senate even more dysfunctional. I’m sure Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) will be even more of a pain in the ass than Jim Bunning. Whatever loon wins the Republican primary in Utah is going to go to Washington with a bug up their ass about eliminating the federal government and its debt. And people will wonder where the civility went.
