I doubt a quick resolution. Tea-baggers are focused on a narrow agenda.Their aim is to reduce the amount the government spends and will stand fast no matter what until they win. They don't care about anything else, thus compromise for the sake of a majority or other interests is not forthcoming. I think suicide bombers have the same zeal. The difference is that tea-baggers are elected, mostly rich and inexperienced while suicide bombers are poor, stupid and young.
