Interesting piece by Patricia Murphy for The Daily Beast on how the Tea Party, largely credited with winning the House for the Republicans in the last election cycle, may well have been rendered toothless thanks to the mechanics and maneuverings in the Republican primary that seem to have preordained Mitt Romney as the nominee. From the article:
“The Tea Party movement is dead. It’s gone,” says Chris Littleton, the cofounder of the Ohio Liberty Council, a statewide coalition of Tea Party groups in Ohio. “I think largely the Tea Party is irrelevant in the primaries. They aren’t passionate about any of the candidates, and if they are passionate, they’re for Ron Paul.”

Littleton is one of the many who have endorsed the Texas congressman; he blames the other GOP candidates for the lackluster energy they have generated in the grassroots that hosted a revolution two years ago.
