    I know...because they are, by and large, a bunch of sore-loser butt-hurt Republicans who are completely hypocritical about big government, corporate welfare, and the rest of it.

    You forgot "racist" and "homophibic"

    And obamas gov is bigger than bush's by a lot.
    Obama's government may be bigger than Bush's, but let us not forget that many of those who supported Bush when he was spending like a drunken sailor are the ones complaining now that a Democrat is doing the same. I think Stekim has a valid point here.

    Some random opinion columnist thinks it has "less influence" then others suggest, which is a completely ambiguous comment as there is nothing concrete there. How much are the "others" suggesting? Is "less" still a decent bit if the "suggested" is huge? Who made the original suggestion. It was an attempt to get an opinion piece portrayed as a news piece by quoting a guy giving an opinion.

    Some other random person thinks those that think it can become a national "party" are deluding themselves. Which, ironically, seems to be geared to be a shot at Tea Partiers based on the implications and the tenor or the story however its primarily NON-Tea Partiers who are most commonly propogating the notion of some kind of national "Tea Party Party".

    So,

    Tea Partiers are a republican leaning group spread over the country whose amount of influence is unknown at this point and likely can't become a national party even though there's no major legitimate attempts by the movement to become such.

    Can I become a Blog writer by saying Water is Wet and George Carlin is Funny, because it seems like stating the obvious and what's pretty much already known is all it takes based on this "news" item.
    Not good enough....... now if you state that George is funny when he's wet, well, then you can be a blog writer.

    If I were going to use that term, I'd spell it correctly. Also, I said exactly what I wanted to say. I consider the overwhelming majority of teapartiers to be butt-hurt hypocrites. Are there some that also called out Bush? Perhaps. But they definitely aren't the majority of the movement. They're statistical anomalies. If you're one of them, go you.

    Hope that helps.

    I would, too. Unless it screams hypocrisy. We started running huge deficits in the 1980's. It then continued unabated through Bush Sr. and then really kicked up a few notches under Dubya. FOR EIGHT DAMN YEARS. But apparently it was all OK then because I don't recall any tea parties or unified whining from the right. Which is why I cannot respect the "movement". The people are either just stupid for not noticing for 30 years or they are hypocrites.

    That's not to say any of this applies to you personally, of course, but it sure as hell applies to the "movement".
    Wow. Am I awesome or what?
