    Watch as these tea baggers screw up the farm bill and vote no on immigrant farm worker program.  The blue dogs are on their way back to DC.

      On their way back to obscurity or irrelevance maybe.  

      Here's the other half of the story that HAS NOT been reported.  While moderates and even traditionally conservative senators and representatives along with crazy teabagging nutsacks have been getting their asses handed to them, the progressive caucus expanded in both the House and Senate.  There are now twice as many progressives in both the House and Senate as there are tea baggers.  Yet the Tea baggers get the bulk of the press and influence.

        Not that I like them, but I can't think of any Blue Dog who's even half as suicidally crazy as the average Teabagger.
