Patriot Act extension fails in the House by seven votes

Patriot Act extension fails in the House by seven votes:


It needed a super-majority.


House Republicans suffered an embarrassing setback Tuesday when they fell seven votes short of extending provisions of the Patriot Act, a vote that served as the first small uprising of the party's tea-party bloc.
I don't think much good can, or will, come of the Tea Party, but nothing, I suppose, is *all* bad.
