I found that article confusing. It wasn't so clear why the Tea Party despises this guy Joyce, especially when the article ended by mentioning that his opponent, Lynch, (the one it appears the tea party will be supporting) voted *against* balancing the budget.
Given what else the article said, I have to wonder if this is the same sort of scenario as with the tea party I was once aligned with. Despite the credo about the Constitution, free-market capitalism, and fiscal responsibility, what it boiled down to at election time (for this largely Catholic group) was *one* thing: who had the strongest anti-abortion record.
When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.
