“Just quit spending all the money.”
In Utah (h/t), incumbent Republican Senator Bob Bennett is running in third place with a couple weeks to go before the Utah GOP winnows the field down to two candidates. The Utah GOP is dominated by members of–or those sympathetic to–the Tea Party movement and Bennett has come under fire for proposing that individuals be required to purchase health care and for supporting the bank bailouts.
“What is uniting everyone right now is fiscal conservatism, and I’m not even sure I like the term conservative. It’s just responsibility. Just quit spending all the money,” said David Kirkham, a co-founder of Utah’s tea party movement.
That’s pretty much the basic uniting factor, isn’t it?
