    1. The Tea Party has their own version of how they achieved a victory.
    2. The Tea Party still holds the Republican establishment in thrall.
    3. The Tea Party sees an opportunity to do it all over again in three months.

    The three reasons not to celebrate are dems, repubs, and the potus. However, I guess this is democracy at work. Better than a dictatorship.
