Political Epiphany! The true birthplace of the Tea Party!

At the end of rewatching a particularly influential Hollywood thriller tonight (the name doesn't matter), a divine epiphany of epic political proportions was granted to me by some unknown and heavenly agency.

I found the true birth of the Tea Party Movement in the following scene:

Quote:
President Clinton: Beavis and Butt-head, on behalf of your fellow Americans I extend my deepest thanks. You exemplify a fine new crop of young Americans who will grow into the leaders of this great country.
Butt-head: Huh huh huh huh. He said, "extend."
Beavis: Oh, yeah.

Beavis and Butthead ARE the Founding Fathers of the Tea Party movement. The movie was released in 1996. It's ironic that one of the country's most beloved Democratic presidents had an accidental hand in the beginnings of the political movement that would help the Republicans steal back the House of Representatives this past election.

'Cept that even with an additional 14 years since that was filmed, those boys would still be about half the age of the average Tea Partier.

@squinney,
Oh, it's Hollywood. As my kids would say, suspend your disbelief.
