Had a long talk with an historian today and we agreed that the Tea Totalitarians are neither grassroots nor a movement.

@plainoldme,
If you would just clean that mirror with a little Windex you will see that you just had a long talk with yourself.

Neither you or your pseudo historian know jack about the T.E.A. party patriots.

@H2O MAN,
Ah! Somehow, there are people who think that scientists know nothing about global warming, that people with doctorates in American history know nothing about politics or political trends, that people with backgrounds in political science don't know the right definition of fascism or socialism. It is the collision of an emotionally based theory with fact that these same people find so upsetting.

When children start school, they are given scissors with rounded tips until they learn how to handle them. Cutting develops hand co-ordination and prepares a child for writing. Their teachers give them this training and guidance. You would think that the right would accept a proper definition as part of its training and guidance.

@plainoldme,


I understand the ill informed progressive - Joe Klein - speaks for you and your ilk... that's just sad.

A few suggestions for the various tea party groups out there:

First and foremost, resist becoming a captive of the Republican party. One of the things I've liked the most about the tea partiers is the fact that they've been just as willing to take on Republicans as Democrats. Their targets seem to be politicians enamored of big government, high taxes and the promotion of government dependency. There are quite a few Republicans who fill that bill.

Second: Don't endorse candidates. I read of one tea party group that endorsed three Republican candidates last week. Once a Republican Party candidate is endorsed that group becomes just a Republican Party faction. This association will make them easier targets for the ObamaMedia.

Split off into smaller neighborhood or community groups. Hold meetings once a month. Discuss policy issues. Invite experts to join and facilitate the discussions. Take a close look at the political stances taken by candidates in your local areas.

Attend town hall meetings. Be civil, but be firm with your convictions. If you support a candidate's stand, say so. If you don't say so and give your reasons. Let the candidate know you're registered to vote .. and have every intention of doing so. Cite your voting precinct. Hold up your application for an absentee ballot. Let them know they aren't talking to some dilettante who won't follow through.

Write newsletters and blogs. Create Facebook pages and twitter accounts. Communicate! Social network sites on the Internet are an excellent way to keep informed and to let the political class know you're still out there, still ticked off, still keeping up, and still determined.

The next round of tea party rallies should be around July 4th, Independence Day. This July 4th will be an excellent opportunity to show the politicians that Independence Day means more than parades, 10k runs and picnics. Maybe the various tea party groups could get together to create another Declaration of Independence .. an update of the one written 234 years ago. In fact, I like this idea so much I may give it a go my own self.

Funny comment from the politico.com article reporting on this new network:

"They are already getting better numbers than MSNBC and CNN and they haven't even aired yet!!"

I understand the network will consist of but one show that airs constantly. Here's a preview:

Let's now place bets on when, exactly, H2O man makes some predictable, not very clever remark that the monkey is me or representative of liberals in general.

Meh. I'm not really bothered by this. If the Tea Party begins to have a consolidated image, it accepts some accountability. If Kelsey or others want to champion it, and produce Tea Party candidates to support, or promote legislative pieces, who cares? It would be better than the boo hoo bullshit that goes on right now from the Tea Party. I'd absolutely love to watch one of these clowns get destroyed in a televised debate where simply saying no to everything and complaining wouldn't cut it.

If the Tea Party wants to be on TV, it just means they'll take from Fox's main vier base anyways.

100% correct. The problem with the current Tea Partiers is that they have no real in-depth understanding of issues; just amateurish angry suggestions and wild ideas about who they hate. I don't think they stand much of a chance when forced to differentiate themselves from both the Republican and the Democratic parties.

@H2O MAN,

Is it true that Janeane Garofalo and a few other Obamabots have volunteered
to be tea-bagged live on TV by none other than the anointed one - Mr. Obama?


Now that would be an interesting debut on B.E.T.

I imagine A2K's more outspoken Obamabots would love to get tea-bagged by their savior.

For effect, PrezBO's face will be covered by a white sheet or something similar.

@Cycloptichorn,
Exactly. That is why the Tea Party is not a movement.
