    when one group is smart and wealthy and the other is poor and dumb; put your money on smart and wealthy.  

    That is the traditional, east coast, CEO/Wall Street wing of the Rethug party will figure out a way to neutralize the Teahadists using the party apparatus, brains, and money.  The teahadists are largely an "Astro Turf" group; cut off the $s and they will dry up. The members may try to split off and organize another party but we aren't talking rocket scientist here.

    The Rethug core created the "Tea Party" as a way to buy time and enthusiasm in the face of a quickly changing demographic situation within the electorate. This election cements the conclusion that they have outlived their usefulness. They are going to quietly disappear by either reabsorbing into the mainstream party or wandering off into the political wilderness.
