The world according to Tea Party Republicans

Well, yesterday we saw the House leadership declare a plan to unconstitutionally pass a law with a sham bill. Forgot to ask what constitutional authority it was being filed under. Today in another show of Tea Party brilliance, PA's freshman Rep. Tom Marino, bemoans the Libya action and asks:
"The bottom line is I wish the president would have told us, talked to Congress about what is the plan. Is there a plan? Is the mission to take Gadhafi out?" Mr. Marino asked.... "Where does it stop?" he said. "Do we go into Africa next? I don't want to sound callous or cold, but this could go on indefinitely around the world."
This guy, who was swept into office by Tea Party fever, has a seat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee. Guess they didn't test his ability to read a map first. These are now "the adults" in charge? Heaven help us.

Update: Marino also sits on the House subcommittee on issues related to African foreign policy.
