Colin Powell, a prominent Republican, recently spoke some constructive criticism to his own party in an interview.

The Republican Party is caught a ridiculous, illogical, Tea Party mindset, and its eating itself from within. Good on Colin Powell for giving the Republican's a little dose of truth, and bad on them for refusing to listen. After its defeat in the recent election, the Republican Party should be looking for ways to strengthen and broaden its base, but every reasonable person is pushed out or ensnared by the Tea Party.

What do you think about the Republican Party today? Or what is your favorite point Sharpton makes? Let us know in the comments, like us on Facebook, and follow us on Twitter to track our progress in taking down the Tea Party Congress.
