In 2010, a group of extreme conservatives took control of the House of Representatives. Calling themselves the tea party, they have produced some of the dumbest politicians ever. These include, but are not limited to: Todd legitimate rape Akin; Richard pregnancy after rape is what God intended Mourdock; and the queen of stupidity, Michele Bachmann, who makes one dumb statement after another, now claiming that we are in the end times.
The tea party has accomplished absolutely nothing until now. It has forced a shutdown of the government. Congratulations! Hopefully, in time we will shut down the tea party and relegate it to the garbage dump of history, where it belongs.
