22. That scumbag started the tea party, and don't you forget it

What I think's happening here is the conservative high-ups that actually run the tea party promised those guys they'd have a majority in the Senate, a strengthened majority in the House and Rubber Stamp Romney to sign off on any damn thing the teabaggers wanted. (Basically, all that shit Ted Nugent talked about in his latest foaming-at-the-mouth screed, and more.) They didn't get it at all--they've got a House majority so tenuous it's possible they'll lose it next election, a strengthened Democratic majority in the Senate, and the guy they were formed to hate still in the White House. So they're pissed and they're taking it out on their founders. In the South they say ya dance with the one what brung ya; apparently the South has drained completely out of the 'baggers because Armey and Rove are the ones that brung 'em...Rove has been PNG'd off Fox and Armey PNG'd out of FreedomWorks.

(PNG is a diplomatic term that means 'persona non grata.' It's the term used when a country throws a foreign nation's ambassador out.)
