Perhaps the tea party that is not a political party should transform itself into an actual political party. It should not become one that serves the principal function of our current parties, keeping incumbents in office well after they have lost touch with their constituents so that seniority will give them more choice committee memberships, chairmanships and pork shoveling power — which in turn help them to keep their seats.
