GOP creates new leadership position to satisfy Tea Party demands

Greg Sargent reports that the GOP may yet come up with a way to satisfy the Tea Party’s demands for representation among the Republican leadership. How? By creating a new position called “representative of the incoming freshman class”:

A GOP aide tells me that the decision has been made to create the post, and newly elected Tea Party favorite Kristi Noem, who unseated Dem Rep. Stephanie Herseth Sandlin in South Dakota and is known to her fans as the “next Sarah Palin,” has “indicated a strong interest.”

In another nod to the incoming freshmen Republicans, the position will be elected by only those freshmen, not the leadership.

The position sounds a bit like the throne to an imaginary kingdom — what are its actual responsibilities and powers? How the role factors into the GOP’s current leadership web will determine whether it’s just a fancy title or a position that will actually satiate the Tea Party’s desire to provide input and influence the direction of the party.

Personally, I think it's an end-run around Michelle Bachmann who is pushing for a leadership position to represent this group. This bars her, yet acknowledges the incoming freshmen. It creates an apparent position of power without actually giving any power away or allowing a more experienced candidate power. Who could be greener than a neophyte incoming freshman from North Dakota?

Will the freshman class have to wear beanies? Will the senior congressmen be able to make them do pushups in the hallways and paddle them? I can't wait to see the pictures on Facebook.
