If the leaders of Tea Party Patriots regret passing out the personal contact info of incoming members of Congress, they're hiding the shame quite well. Here was how TPP announced Mitch McConnell's earmark walkback on their Facebook page .
A friend also passed on an e-mail that Debbie Dooley of TPP sent to members.
Last week McConnell said that he would oppose earmarks. Now over the weekend, he has changed his mind. Just might have something to do with the unending phone calls the freshmen received. He did not want that unleashed on him and other Senators. Bet the vote will be almost unanimous...
Not so many regrets, then.
