Graham's dalliance with cap-and-trade crowd a bad move

Republicans are learning something unpleasant. They're not popular among the TEA Party crowd.

I'm sure they fantasized that this grass-roots movement was their natural ally. But it's not turning out that way.

The TEA Party is an amalgam of Americans who agree that government has gotten too big, too intrusive, too expensive and too profligate in its spending.
