    I think the way they approach things is antithetical to promoting conservative ideology. They are rallying those who already agree while alienating those who don't already agree. It's entirely caused by their rhetoric and the way they have embraced the worst things associated with conservative movements.

    Movements like this, run as they are, ****ing kill me a bit inside because they undermine intellectually legitimate movements with their rampant emotionally-charged drivel.





    I don't recognize either of these as the "leaders" of the grass roots tea party movement. I see these people thus far as opportunists.

    What in your view is a legitimate movement and what constitutes "legitimate"?
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Looks like the Tea partiers themselves are the ones to blame....

    You can comence with calling Olbermann a liberal but the picture in the interview says it all. Sorry.
    I saw Olbermann when he did this live on his show. Olbermann was pointing out the emperor's new clothes. The man is a genius.

    No, Palin is just the latest to jump on the band wagon.

    Whatever man. What is your issue with small government and individual liberty?
    Well when I think of "small government" I actually think of less representatives not just fewer government programs, beaurocrats and less spending. I mean, if there need to be job cuts they should start in state government then go up to federal. My state, Minnesota, has something like the second most representatives. The governor keeps cutting programs from the state budget and refuses to raise taxes. This is a lose lose situation if you ask me. In my opinion what needs to be cut is the representatives pay and or some of their positions not the social programs that actually make a difference in peoples lives.

    Anyway, Regan expanded the government, Bush Sr. expanded the government, Clinton expanded the government, Bush Jr. expanded the government and now, Obama is expanding the government. I hardly believe that the next president if it is not Obama won't expand the government. I mean how can anybody claim that they will when what really needs to be done is to eliminate representatives... I mean look at these fools, it's the actual people in office that are the waste of money. And honestly I don't think it's even possible to lay off half of congress on the grounds that their jobs are unnecessary.

    The TPN (Tea Party Nation) wants to send them (congress) pink slips but some other schmuck is just going to take their place. It doesn't change the fact that there are too many cooks (or kooks) in the kitchen.
    We must picture hell as a state where everyone is perpetually concerned about his own dignity and advancement, where everyone has a grievance, and where everyone lives with the deadly serious passions of envy, self-importance, and resentment.

    Not too surprising.

    Then again, since I'm an adult, I don't read comic books and would never have known about Marvel's idiocy if I wasn't told.

    I'm not surprised that so many socialists and liberals read comics still.
    You should read them. You are one of Marvel's evil characters.

    Actually, lets use Tuck's example.

    The Democrat Parties symbol is a Donkey.

    A donkey is known as an ass, an a male donkey a jackass.

    Naturally, since TECHNICALLY it is true that Democrats = Donkey's by their own choice of a symbol (and thus the symbol they CHOOSE to identify with by being Democrats) and Donkey's = Asses, then TECHNICALLY it shouldn't be an insult to call every self proclaimed Democrat on this board an Ass, and specifically call all the males jackasses.

    Yet is anyone going to claim, while perhaps technically correct, that that's not meant for any reason other than to be insulting? That its not childish? That its not juvinile. If no Democrat ever purposefully and seriously refered to themselves as "Asses" in regards to their party would it be an implied lie to say "Hey, the Democrats shouldn't have called themselves Asses if they didn't want to be called it"?

    Yes, many in the Tea Party movement sent tea bags to congress, and others have made the rather juvenile and childish signs like "Tea Bag the Libs". Literally, one could call those who send tea bags to someone "tea baggers". However no one is saying it in a literal sense. With Sabotuer or DisneyDude or any of these others doing it say it they're not saying it in a literal sense, but in a completely insulting and degrading sense...much like calling any Democrat an Ass.

    Now, I'm not going to ask you Tuck if you think that's acceptable. I know your style and your views well enough to know there's a difference between what you think is fine if people want to do it (because people shouldn't get offended by someone doing something childish) and being able to admit somethings meant to be insulting or is juvenile.

    So what I will ask Tucker is that would calling male democrats "Jackasses" whenever describing them be, most likely, purely insultive and a juvenile attempt at making fun of them despite it being TECHNICALLY true based on a sign they choose to identify with.

    And if so, how is that different than the Tea Partiers?
