How Many Teabaggers Live In Connecticut?

It’s full of Nutmeggers, not Wingnuts.  Yet here’s what Republican Rob Simmons seems compelled to say as he slobbers over the Senate nomination:

Though he had a relatively moderate voting record in Congress, Mr. Simmons has recently made efforts to court conservatives.  He said he carries a “tea bag” in his pocket, in reference to the anti-big-government activist movement, and he has apologized for supporting cap-and-trade and union-friendly legislation in the House.  [Emphasis added]

A tea bag in your pocket.  Okay.  Whatever, Rob.

This may be the Democrats’ not-so-secret weapon in November.  Make fun of her all you want, but Sarah Palin is the most influential Republican in the country right now.  And she’s . . . unpredictable.

If alleged Republican “moderates” are forced to get the Palin seal of approval to run for office, they’ll be in trouble in states where sanity has yet to be outlawed.
