Lindsey Graham to Tea Party: You will "die out"

Senator Lindsey Graham is apparently not a big fan of the Tea Party movement:
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has some tough words for the Tea Party movement in a new profile in the New York Times: You have no vision, and you'll die out.

"The problem with the Tea Party, I think it's just unsustainable because they can never come up with a coherent vision for governing the country. It will die out," said Graham, who has come under fire from the right for being excessively moderate and compromising with Democrats.

Graham also said he challenged a group of Tea Partiers in a meeting: "'What do you want to do? You take back your country -- and do what with it?'...Everybody went from being kind of hostile to just dead silent."
This shouldn't be a problem for Senator Graham, after all, the Tea Party is known for its cool, sober reasoning. I'm sure they won't hold a grudge.
