If there is anyone left out there who still doesn't get why the Tea Parties are pretty much done with the Republican Party, a recent Senate vote should finally bring on the Great Epiphany. In a cloture vote this week, 11 senators voted with Democrats, allowing the Marxist/neo-fascist Democrats to approve the nomination by Obama-Soetoro of a former director of Planned Parenthood to a federal district court judgeship (http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/11-republican-senators-permit-former-pla). It seems giving the president the prerogative of an up-or-down vote on his judicial nominees -- something that Democrats feel no compunction to do for Republicans -- is more important to these 11 than keeping an activist, leftist abortionist off the federal bench. And then, to add insult to injury, these arrogant drains on the treasury had the nerve to, after voting for cloture, and thus knowingly allowing the Democrat majority to win the nomination vote, all vote against the nomination, so they could tell the rubes back home, "See, I really am a conservative!"
Just so you can vote against these spineless parasites come next election time, they are: Lamar Alexander (R-TN), Scott Brown (R-MA), Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe both (R-ME), Saxby Chambliss and Johnny Isakson both (R-GA), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Mark Kirk (R-IL), John McCain (R-AZ), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and John Thune (R-SD).
Unfortunately, Republicans have not been so concerned with their role in advise and consent on other nominees, like the 39 so-called "czars," outrageous radicals, unconstitutionally appointed by Obama-Soetoro, without even a nod to the Senate. An occasional mumbled complaint from Senate Republicans about being blatantly ignored surfaces, but is played by the media to make the Senate Republicans look like the ineffectual, bumbling morons far too many of them actually are. One could feel real compassion for these intellectually challenged oafs, if not for the fact that they are allowing our country to be taken apart, piece by piece, right in front of our eyes.

Comment: I have come to the belief that in 1913 the US Senate became the legislative arm of the Executive Branch, and the actions described above only reconfirm this belief.
