Posted on Jul 20, 2010
The newly hatched tea party caucus in the House of Representatives, for which we all have Rep. Michele Bachmann to thank, is sure to be a source of curiosity for many—and derision for others.

The Huffington Post:
And now, it seems that Bachmann’s Tea Party caucus dream has become a reality. “Just got word that the Committee on House Administration officially approved the House Tea Party Caucus,” said the conservative congresswoman in a tweet on Monday afternoon.
Republican Conference Chairman Mike Pence became the first House member to signal his intention to join Bachmann’s newly-created caucus.
