From this Tuesday's Special Report on Fox "news," panel members James Riley, Kirsten Powers and Tucker Carlson discuss the evolving fight between the so-called "tea party" and the Republican establishment with host Bret Baier.

No mention of course of the fact that there is no "tea party." It's the Republican base and the John Birch Society that's been with us for decades now. No mention of the AstroTurf nature of the so-called "tea party" and the billionaires pouring their money into the fake grass movement. Only lots of opining on whether or not the Republicans are going to be harmed again by having unelectable candidates prevail in their primary races for the midterms.

Can you help us out?
