Neutralize the Tea Party? But how do you control Sen. Ted Cruz?

The National Journal describes itself as “the most credible and influential publication in Washington” and “fiercely honest and scrupulously non-partisan.” Hmmm.

In an article entitled “Inside the Messy but Moneyed Republican Plan to Neutralize the Tea Party” [emphasis added], subtitled “The business-friendly GOP establishment is putting its cash to work in skirmishes across the country that might reshape the 2014 elections,” one reads phrases such as    
  • wrecked the Republican brand
  • ultraconservative ideologues
  • [plan to run] attack ads against tea-party candidates for Congress
  • the public's growing distaste for the [Tea Party] movement
  • [Cruz, the] ringleader of the shutdown

No bias here, no polarizing turns-of-the-phrase, just move along. Former Ohio representative Steve LaTourette doesn’t much like Tea Party Patriots, either:
"Hopefully we'll go into eight to 10 races and beat the snot out of them."

Very nicely put. But here’s the crux of the matter:
“But how do you control Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, the Republican ringleader of the shutdown, who may not count enough friends on Capitol Hill to rename a post office but whose real power comes from outside Washington?” 

“Whose real power comes from outside Washington?” We’ll work for more of that!

Here’s more of Beth Reinhard’s Oct-24 article (h/t Gateway Pundit).
