New York Times Shocked That Tea Party 'Rebels' Outraising Establishment Sellout Karl Rove and His Ilk

How many times has the lamestream media dissed the tea party as finished, kaput? Grassroots conservatism was supposed to be dead in the water, having turned the GOP into a gang of "hostage takers." So you get snickers at this headline at the Times, "Rebel Conservatives Excel in G.O.P. Fund-Raising, Heralding a Tug Right." (At Memeorandum.)

The problem, now, however, is that the establishment GOP is still trying to throw the tea party under the bus. Ed Driscoll has that, "They Don’t Call ‘em the Stupid Party for Nothing." It's all about "immigration reform" now, which is why Marco Rubio's supposedly moving to the top of the presidential heap, or something. At the Hill, "GOP insiders back Rubio in 2016." I personally was never very impressed by Rubio He was  tea party favorite but now seems the candidate of the open borders crowd. Lame.
