Get Me Rewrite: From the Right, Despair, Anger and Delusion

From the Right, Despair, Anger and Disillusion. (The New York Times, 10/17/2013)

Some quotes from the article.

Ya der hay!  Tea Party Congressman Listens To Constituent Who Wears Thomas Jefferson Costume Everywhere.  (The Onion, 10/14/2013)

Tea party wants to take America back -- to the 18th century. (Los Angeles Times, 10/13/2013)

Excerpt:   As bad as things are, we like to say, they have been worse and the nation somehow survived. 

But for the life of me, I cannot recall an occasion when a minority of elected representatives with such an absurdly partisan agenda was capable of stopping the government of the United States in its tracks.
