So Far, the Tea Party Has Succeeded

From Chris Good at The Atlantic:

The Tea Party, in many respects, has been the political story of the last two years.

The Tea Party movement has continued along since its first protests in the spring of 2009, and in November it will face its first major test at the ballot boxes, as we find out whether this movement can succeed in reshaping American government by altering the congressional majorities and putting anti-Obama fiscal conservatives in office.
