  • Bad - this is one more powergrab trying to hijack all the individual tea parties into a cohesive ideology which does not exist. Each individual Tea Party is concerned with the issues local to it. The only real common values are fiscal conservatism. A few idiots with lots of money are trying to co-opt the Tea Party name and add a bunch of bible banging bs to it, directly in opposition to the desires of most of the individual Tea Parties (which existed long before the Tea Party Nation Corporation, of which Palin, Bachman and other idiots are the public faces).

  • Typical of the Tea Party,tho.

    Which Tea Party? Cannot wait for you to enlighten us. Surely you are aware there are thousands of them, right?

  • Nice generalization, Gertie. Doesn't that make you a bigot, when you make sweeping negative generalizations about people?

    Oh yeah, it does.

  • My "fear" with Michelle Bachmann is that while her message is good, she is aligning herself (or allowing the alignment) of people who have not fared well politically/socially as far as the average voter is concerned. Sarah Palin (and her handlers)...allowed Katie Couric and the media to mock her incessantly--beyond the good humor and "ribbing" that is expected of political candidates. Orly Taitz has tarnished her reputation as well being labeled a "birther." Once you have shown political weakness or an extremist's pretty much over!!

    If a third party is REALLY going to become viable, it HAS to draw upon the average "middle of the road" people--and not politicians (no matter how good their platform is) trying to make a name for themselves. The TEA Party doesn't NEED a leader at this time--and those trying to step up and lead a party, that really isn't a party, is going to be the demise of the entire effort!!
