Tea Party Tail Wags GOP Dog Again

If you want to see precisely what is wrong with the Tea Party, read this article in this morning's Washington Post about Tea Party opposition to the "Common Core" initiative to improve our nation's schools. I especially call readers' attention to the comments of former Florida Governor Jeb Bush who is a champion of the effort. He lays out arguments. The Tea Party responds with a conspiracy theory. And, you can guess whether GOP governors in the crosshairs will listen to Bush and reason or to the Tea Party.
