A large group of Major Kong Impersonators

They ALL want to ride the bomb down to the ground.
But what Wall Street fails to realize, according to Potomac Research Group's Greg Valliere, is the extent to which the Tea Party just doesn't care. Valliere wrote to clients this morning:
We talked to Tea Party stalwarts last night, and tried to make our best arguments. "Don't you realize the Republicans could lose the House in 2014?" We don't care, they said. "Don't you worry about a catastrophic reaction in the financial markets?" We don't care, they said. "Don't you worry that the Democrats will aggressively play the Social Security card with seniors?" We don't care, they said.
"This is the Alamo, it's Braveheart, battles to the death. These people are on a Mission from God," Valliere says.
It's going to be a long wait for that mortality table to catch up to me. [Cross-posted at Firedoglake]

"These people are on a Mission from God."

That's going to inflate Charlie Koch's ego to even more monstrous proportions.
