The tea party is is made up of puppets being run by an elite group to serve their needs and not the needs of the people

What a week for the tea party:
Cain's departure shows us the the tea party believes it is OK to sexually harass women, just don't carry on an affair with them.
A Kansas tea party group depicts Obama as a skunk drawing fire that the picture is rascist. They claim it is not, however they pull the picture, making many feel that it really was meant as a rascist gesture.
Gingrich skyrockets in tea party polls and becomes the latest of their presidential front runners. A career progressive Republican with highly questionable moral values is the pick of the front runner?
Couple that with the New Hampshire tea party tossing their support to Romney can only lead credence to the following comment by Glen Beck;
“And I issued a challenge to Tea Party members. … [Gingrich] is a progressive. … If you have a big government progressive, or a big government progressive in Obama, one in Newt Gingrich, one in Obama, ask yourself this, Tea Party: is it about Obama’s race? Because that’s what it appears to be to me. If you’re against him but you’re for this guy, it must be about race.” Glenn Beck

My Democrat friends will get a kick out of this entry and hopefully my civil minded Republican friends will get a scare and a wake up call. I get flack quite often that I'm overblowing the affect of the tea party as it relates to the Republican party as a whole. Well, the latest Pew report shows just that.
In this first graph we see that twice as many of the general public now view the tea party unfavorably. That is a major swing in just over a year. Now the graph on the right shows only those districts where in the last election a tea party candidate was elected to office. You would think after all they have touted themselves as that their favorable rating would improve. In fact, just the opposite has occurred and their numbers are far worse than with the general public.
This is the one that burnes me as you can see by the graph on the right that the tea party is indeed hurting the Republican Party.
