And speaking of Congresscreatures who need to be unelected

Tea party-backed candidates split on the debt ceiling vote 76-34 according to a Washington Post tally. U.S. Rep. Renee Ellmers, a Republican representing the 2nd Congressional District who received Tea party backing in her campaign, cast her vote for the final debt deal.

This is not the first, second or third time Ellmers has failed to stand by positions she voiced during the campaign. Next time around, the Tea Party needs to be a bit more careful who they campaign for, it seems.
