Remember all those confident assertions after 2010 that the Tea Party had run its course? Well, now that Republicans have just booted out longtime moderates such as Dick Lugar in favor of more conservative candidates, suddenly the narrative has changed. Now, Democrats such as John Kerry and Bill Clinton are warning their “colleagues across the aisle” of the dangers of “hyperpartisanship.”

Does this mean that reports of the Tea Party’s death have been greatly exaggerated? I expect the Tea Party will start trying to reach consensus with the free-spending liberals just as soon as Barack Obama offers to compromise just one his leftist principles–which, apparently, is never.
