GOP Losing Control of Tea Party Movement

The Tea Party whiners came out in many cities (including Tulsa) over the July 4 weekend, but their appearance may not bode well for their Republican allies.

Texas Sen. John Cornyn, a conservative Republican, was booed at a Tea Party rally in Austin. Elsewhere, the Tea Party gang turned up with outlandish and racist posters, comparing President Obama to (of course!) Hitler.

The crazies are out there and the Republicans have no way of managing the inane resentment and over-the-top rhetoric professed by these folks—and ably assisted by Talk Radio and its Republican base.

TPM has the sorry details here.

The 'Baggers need a leader for their incipient splinter party. How 'bout Palin? I think she's going to be available soon.
