Via MSNBC, Lawrence O'Donnell explains the shame brought on to the Senate by some of its more Tea Party type members during the rewrite section of his program on Dec. 4th.
Representatives in the House and the Senate who identify themselves as associated with the Tea Party, and therefore with Glenn Beck, need to be removed from office. If we're going to have an effective government, rather than an irrational, fear-based dysfunctional one, Beck's allies need to be -- like Allan West in 2012, voted out of office. In 2014, this trend needs to continue before -- if it's not too late -- these reactionaries misinformed by Mr. Beck do something dangerously stupid.

If more Republicans figure out that they've been lied to, then the Tea Party will be dead in the water (maybe that's why Fox banished failed pundits Dick Morris and Karl Rove).
Before more people are taken in by Beck's paranoid fantasies,
