Thanks, kid. You’ve served your useful purpose. Now scram.
First it was tea party extremist-in-the-extreme Kerry Bentivolio who who picked up a primary challenger in the form of foreclosure specialist and wealthy Big Businessman David Trott. Next up: Justin Amash. Amash will be primaried by Brian Ellis, a man who boasts that he has “all the money he’ll need from ‘a group of people who can give at robust levels'”.
In other words, like Trott, Ellis’s campaign is being bankrolled by wealthy corporatists who have come to realize that they can no longer control the tea party lawmakers they thought would do their bidding.
It’s a sad state of affairs when Republicans are having choose between tea partiers who want to destroy government and corporatists who want to make it their handmaiden. But that’s your Republican party of 2013. They can’t decide if it’s anarchy or a corporatocracy that they want.
It's sad but we just have to cheer for the business wing of the GOP to take the party back from the set-my-poop-on-fire wing of the GOP.

The American people? They want neither. See you in 2014.
The tea party is getting kicked to the curb
