The leftist news medias for many, many months have been publishing articles declaring the TEA Party as no longer relevant or even DEAD. This article is proof that they are once again wrong.

“I think she’s probably the most competent person they’ve got in their– in their cabinet. And– frankly, I thought she was gonna win the nomination last time around,” Cheney said. “Maybe if– the Obama record is bad enough– and these days it’s not very good, given the shape of the economy maybe there will be enough ferment– in the Democratic Party so that there will be a primary on their side.”
