The (political) science is settled: the Tea Party is over

But hey, don’t take my word for it. Listen to the “experts”!

The Hill:

The reign of the Tea Party may be coming to an end in Washington, according to academic political experts who say polls show a backlash against the conservative movement.

Two national polls released this month by CNN and The New York Times in conjunction with CBS News showed the Tea Party’s unfavorable rating at an all-time high.

Political scientists say the data shows a backlash of independent voters against conservative lawmakers who have taken a hard line against bipartisan compromise in Washington.

Keeping in mind that “bipartisan” and “compromise” mean “doing whatever the Democrats want, whenever they want, without question,” then yes, a hard line has been taken. Which is why there is now a “backlash.” Oh my goodness, what a “backlash.”

Whew! So you don’t have to worry about those dumb teabaggers anymore, libs. You were right all along when you pretended they didn’t exist. And even more right when you admitted they exist, in order to degrade them. And you couldn’t have been more correct when you called them “terrorists” and “tyrants” for opposing your will. Your efforts have paid off, and soon the Tea Party will be no more.

Well done. Now go back to sleep. There, that’s the way.
