Now that the elections are over, the Shadow Government is wasting no time:
Generals Petraeus & Allen, purged,
Boehner purges uncooperative House committee members,
Senator DeMint announces his resignation. Lindsey Graham and Harry Reid smile.
As the Chinese might say, "May you live in interesting times".
Are you joking or are you a conspiracy theory believer? I am curious to know more about this shadow government (seriously).
Other than maybe being ratted out by someone, I thought the Generals brought about their own downfall. IMO the replacement of the committee members was a gutsy move in the best interests of the country. There has to be a compromise and these guys were impediments. Likely a wasted effort, though. Gov Haley's likely appointment for DeMint's seat will either be a Tea bagger, oops, Tea Party member or endorsed by them so no net loss.
Actually I agree nearly 100% with the Tea Party's core principles; I just don't like much of the rest of the politics of the majority who embrace the Tea Party.
