    The Tea Party, the child of Fox News, is turning into a really great thing for the left... a quick scan of the news and blogs reveals much... a party that will divide the right is great for the left, some might remember the Nader effect on the left..but this is much more organized. A party that is anti-science, anti-gay, anti-stem cell research, spreading hysteria about "death panels", spreading hysteria about the Fairness Doctrine, anti-immigration, spreading hysteria about the second amendment, idle rhetoric about big government.. pro creationism... all under the umbrella of extreme religion... even John McCain is not safe from their wrath...it will make truly great political theater..

    All the while Fox News coverage is soaring..in the words of Laura Ingraham.. she can certainly indentify with the "poor" of america... Martin Niemoller took a turn in his grave after his famous quote was bastardized to this extent...

    Dawn Teo: McCain Senate Re-Election Race Already Getting Ugly

    For Michele Bachman, can you rail about the spread of "socialism" in DC and still be a recipient of socialist parties... inquiring minds want to know. Maybe her reference to the "Light Brigade" is prophetic....

    If you want a good laugh on the Tea Party, take a gander at this...

    Little Green Footballs - Jon Stewart on the Final Tea Party of the Year

    For $19.95 you can own this really great video of the tea party..hurry is you act soon, they will even throw in some tinfoil for a new hat... with a propeller.. interestingly enough Joe Farah has dropped his crusade for the Birth Certificate... maybe it had something to do with that brilliant defender of the constitution, Orly Taitz...

    God bless the Tea Party, and any other party that comes along, that tries to smash the establishment in the mouth, head on. I applaud them all. It's time to get all the loser, hack, POS frauds out of office. Term limits, or termination.

    It would be cool RW if it wasn't funded by by big buisness, if it were truly grass roots it would be a good thing, but its not.

    Um, that's fine - but don't we keep reelecting them? It's not really their fault if they stay in office forever if they keep getting voted back in.

    It would be "our" responsibility to vote them out - which we could do - apparently, seeing as how we "don't" do it, we must want them there.

    Quite a delusional statement.

    Of course the Dem and Rep parties have no established relationships with big business, unions, and community-based organizations.

    Just relax, Darryl, it will work out fine. Although the parties will likely merge into a stronger, better, more true Republican Party, the vote won't be split that much and there's tons of Conservatives who voted for obama because they felt like they had no place else to go. All that really matters for now is getting to November and getting a ton of Democrats out of Congress.

    The Tea Party group has been organized and supported by two main groups - Freedom Works and Americans For Prosperity - both of which are run by former lobbyists. Freedom works by Dick Armey, the former Republican Majority Leader who now leads Freedom Works and is a lobbyist for the firm DLA Piper while Americans for Prosperity is run by Tim Phillips, who was Ralph Reed’s former partner in the lobbying firm Century Strategies. The group is funded by Koch family foundations — a family whose wealth is derived from the oil industry.

    That's all well and fine - and there seems to be some others here who agree with you - just remember, it didn't work last time and it might not work this time, either.

    Majority still rules and there are an awful lot of stinkin liberals still around - and we're marking our calenders, too.

    I personally don't care who it's funded by, as much as I care who's involved. If I see everyday citizens marching in the street, supporting a cause, or policy platform, that they believe is in their best interests, then I applaud it. The participants are what determine merrit.

    That's why we need term limits ASAP. I'd be fine with even allowing 3 consecutive terms for senators and congressman. That's what, like 18 years of service? There is no reason not to have something minimal like that. The issue that exists is that incumbants go unopposed usually, in their primary. That means that only the challenger from an opposing party has a shot to unseat them. Most people aren't going to vote for the opposing party, for the sole purpose of unseating an incumbant. They will simply vote for Ted Kennedy, or Strom Thurmond, until they croak. The lack of term limits creates a system where which incumbents are difficult to unseat, for as long as they feel like running.

    They look "grass root" to me, Americans who are FED UP, they don't want Communist Health Care, they don't want The Government coming into their bedrooms and their toilets they are also FED UP watching President Sh!t Head Jug Ears Obama throwing their money away, many of them are losing their homes and eating Corn Flakes for Xmas Dinner, if Stupid Obama keeps it up Haiti will be better off then America.

    There are lobbyists everywhere. Just ask Obama who's got them working in his administration, even though he promised otherwise. The point is, the term shouldn't be considered eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeevil. The people that make backroom deals, without the best interests of the nations citizens at heart, are the one's who should be. Nothing that takes on the establishment is going to be without support, or affiliation, with someone, or something, we don't like. That's just the world we live in. I'm more concerned with the substance, platform, message, and sincerity of the movement, than I am with everything else. If the cause looks like a schill, then I'll be the first to criticize it.

    Majority doesn't really rule in our system as much as some people think it does. We're a republic afterall. Also, I believe something like 20% of the pop, give or take, calls themselves liberal. I mention this because the current liberal gubmit is not doing to well in the publics eyes. The past neo-con gubmit we all know about. It's the last 9 years of rule that have really soured people on the extremist run republican and democratic parties. Both have had control, to complete control, and each have done a horrible job of leading the country. That's why there is a Tea party type movement. I think it expresses some of the frustration that moderates, independents, and (fiscal) conservatives feel.

    The majority can't run rampant over the wants of the people and the constitution the way the obamans are at this very moment; certainly the former, probably the latter. obama will either work with the far stronger minority or he'll get nothing done. Unfortunately we have 11 months of being f*cked over first.

    If you look at a lefty rally all the signs are profesionally printed. If you look at the tea parties the signs are hand made and unprofessional, which is grass roots and which is astroturf?


    Typically the left accuses people of doing what they themselves do.



    BTW think progress is funded by who? G Soros IIRC.
