For some reason the Koch Brothers don’t seem to push their little pet project the “Tea Party” that much anymore. Maybe they’ve found some other and more effective ways to corrupt the goverment, or maybe their troops just didn’t do so well once let into power.

“The Tea Party movement is dead. It’s gone,” says Chris Littleton, the cofounder of the Ohio Liberty Council, a statewide coalition of Tea Party groups in Ohio. “I think largely the Tea Party is irrelevant in the primaries.

From their website the foucs is mounting debt, entitlement cost, failing schools and bad dependence on foreign oil (!). Maybe it’s a trial baloon – maybe it’s an attack on McConnell and Boehner, maybe it’s the beginning of a reformation and renewal of the Republican party – pulling a little bit towards the center-right camp. We’ll see.
