Trust the Tea Party to keep stirring it up for president

MARK STEEL

NOW the American government is open again, I wonder what tactic the Tea Party will try next to get their way. One favourite must be chilli powder down Barack Obama's underpants.

One of their senators will explain in a live interview from Washington: "We have no choice but to do this until the president shows he is willing to negotiate", while in the background we can hear: "Yeaaagh, they're on fire".

Whatever they do, to them it seems utterly reasonable, so they make statements such as: "It's the president who is causing this conflict, by insisting on implementing the policies he was elected on. So what choice did we have but to urinate over the Democrat senators in alphabetical order? It's only what Abraham Lincoln would have done?"
