Mitchell Bard: The Tea Party All-Stars: The Worst of Extreme GOP Midterm Candidates
Noted football coach Bill Parcells once said, "You are what your record says you are."
Parcells' quote jumped into my mind when I was thinking about the slate of Tea Party-influenced Republicans running in November. I feel like we've become immune to the stories about the extreme and, sometimes, downright delusional things they've said, since they've come in a steady stream over the past several months. But if you step back and look at the group as a whole (or at least some of the leading Tea Party favorites), you can get a real sense of what the Republican Party is offering voters in November.
In short, I thought it would be useful to give a rundown of some of the madness.
