    The Tea Party candidates that were defeated by Democrats demonstrated the public in those regions turned against them. This is a definite downturn for their movement.

    The second part is that the remaining Tea Party members that survived because they were in Red Districts will be poisoning the Republican Brand even more as the months go on. These troublemakers within the conservative ranks provide even more benefits to the Democrats in the House and Senate as it dilutes the Republican Majority/Minority from agreeing on anything as a group.

    So it's pretty much a Win/Win for Democrats whether they gain office over a Teahadist candidate or have a House Majority in total fricking disarry due to the ones still around. Those latter ones are up to the GOP to finally get the cahones to remove them from their party.

    Until then we enjoy the benefits!
