In article after article, I'm not seeing a tea party who's lying down and accepting the declaration of their death made by media pundits. Indeed, they still appear to be a powerful force in republican party politics, and apparently they're able to sustain support between election cycles, so they make a reappearance with every election cycle, presumably with a goal of getting a dozen, or even a few more candidates elected.
If they can maintain this momentum, it's easy enough to see where this is heading. Eventually, the republican party will become the tea party.
I may completely disagree with the tea party on its stated objectives, but I also admit .... it's hard not to admire their strategy.
