It is going to be interesting.
I am definitely not a fan of the tea party group. The people I know who are part of it are not people I respect, and seem to be few in number, but many people keep their political views close to their chests, so the movement could be larger than I think.
If it is, I have to wonder who they will support. I can't see Palin going anywhere, but she seems to curry a lot of favor there.
Populist movements haven't done well in the past, but there is always a first time. My best guess is that if they do help elect candidates, they will probably get more Scott Brown disappointments.
And that's why I always have hope. Brown surprised me by showing he has a working brain and intends to use it. Even Dear Sarah might act rationally when faced with reality.
But regardless, it definitely will be interesting.
