When the first few Tea Parties started popping up across the country, they were nothing more than a fringe offshoot of the GOP. Unfortunately, Republican leaders decided to join forces with this fringe, pushing their party as far to the right as possible, and casting out any Republican politician who refused to pander to Party’s fringe. As a result, we’re left with a Republican Party that is so out of touch with society that they are doing serious harm to our country. Mike Papantonio discusses the GOP’s continuing crusade to purge the Party of its remaining moderate voices with John Nichols, Washington Correspondent for The Nation Magazine.
