Bachmann hasn't yet convinced Kline and Paulsen to drink the tea
Tea for thee? As of 9:30 a.m. today, no other member of the House of Representatives from Minnesota has signed on as a member Michele Bachmann's Tea Party Caucus, the official "receptacle" of people pissed off that democratic elections and legislating have consequences.

Democrats Tim Walz, Betty McCollum, Keith Ellison, Collin Peterson and Jim Oberstar aren't joining the party. But what about Republicans John Kline and Erik Paulsen?

Tea for those two?

Forget it, the Strib reports. They're not alone. In fact, Bachmann got busted for a little grade inflation when her original list included congress members who hadn't joined.

Here's the updated list of House members drinking the tea so far, as posted on Bachman's congressional website. Republicans all, it includes such luminaries as Joe "BP Apologist" Barton, and Joe "You Lie" Wilson.
