What if there were tea party democrats? Refusing to compromise and completely unreasonable, tea party democrats demand the repeal of Obamacare. (Man: No budget, no peace! Repeal Obamacare, give us socialized medicine!) They threaten economic catastrophe unless they get everything they want. (Man: ...and close GITMO and nationalize the banks and $25 minimum wage and jail CEOs- or no more debt limit.) Mainstream pundits accuse them of being extreme- but they say they're representing their consituents. (Man 2: The layoff victims in my district didn't send me to Washington to sell them out!) Insiders call it pandering. In other words, democracy. (Man 3: Why don't they just tell the voters what they want to hear to get elected, and then do the opposite?) (Man 4: These radicals are ruining biz-as-usual-ocracy!!)
