Awwww, the Tea Party's so cute when it's trying not to sound idiotic.
This unbalanced article has some more of the usual idiocies from Hurt and no real information about how the job situation in our district is being completely ignored by him, so I'm just going to skip to the bottom of the article where the Tea Party tries to pretend they matter:
Danville Tea Party Chairman Darriel Burnett said he did not like an increase to the debt ceiling.
...But now that the debt limit has been raised he hopes that other leaders in Congress push toward decreased spending, otherwise the group will throw its support elsewhere.
“If they think the Tea Party is upset now,” said Burnett. “Just wait.”
Just so you know, you're never going to beat Hurt with a challenge from the right. Ever. I think even Hurt knows that.
