Now you think they're evil and destroying American?? (because if you follow the thread and understand the meaning of the word 'ironic' that's exactly what you just said)
'Evil' is a bit harsh, just scared and not too bright. But, yes, their impotent rage and moronic talking points are destroying reasonable discussion and pragmatic solutions.
My new theory is the Tea Party is really an ingenious rebranding of the GOP and suckering the Libertarians to come over and vote with them. Like we're seeing now with the social con issues being raised as Teabagger issues, it's really just the same ol' GOP. New Coke tasted different and failed immediately. They just poured a talking point version of the GOP platform into the a New Box called Tea Party. And when a certain percentage of your base still harbors racist beliefs, it's easy to get them to come out after the election of a black President.
The joke is now that they've fired a handful of overt racists in their leadership, the whole Teabagger movement has been purged of bigots and homophobes... That's ironic. (look it up)
