Ah, the Iron Law

by Smitty (h/t Hot Air)

    Think of the the American political landscape as a valley, with moderates milling about in the middle, which is also a no-man's land, and the ridges on the left and right are populated by some deeply committed partisans.

As for the right ridge: Tea Party.
