I'm sure by morning Republicans will be calling Democrats socialists*, and we'll be back to normal.
*I wasn't referring to Bernie Sanders, who actually ran as a socialist.
UPDATE: The Congressman defends himself in a CNN interview by comparing the Tea Party to the KKK. His proof? That they speak of wanting to "take the country back"- which, as I pointed out, was the title of a book by Democrat party chairman Howard Dean, and the motto of out-of-power candidates in every election cycle.
