GOP vs. Tea

Given how much Christine has in common with Sarah Palin, this photo reminds me of the shot from the Republican Convention (see second pic) of the shocking Veep choice getting tutoring-on-the-fly from McCain’s designated-Professor Higgins, Steve Schmidt.
The photo hits on at least two points as COD gets an earful from an RNC handler in a Kent County Republican Headquarters joint appearance with Michael Steele. Number one is how much handling Christine really needs. The second is the size of challenge, and the tension involved in the GOP establishment trying to manage their Tea Party cousins.
Just don’t mess with the wardrobe, fellas!
