At least, the National Tea Party Unity Convention that was being planned for mid-October in Las Vegas is off. It was supposed to be a repeat of the convention in Nashville last February, which drew 600 “delegates” (and almost as many reporters) and an adoring audience for Sarah Palin, the keynote speaker.

Karl Rove has already finished his blueprint for another eight year pilage fest, so he has to promise the talk show hosts some reward for putting this frankenstein genie back into the bottle. Now we will see if the talk show propagandists want more money or will they flex and go for more power
I like that title, you better start writing, or I'll snag it.
I have a series of poems about roses..
the canceled tea party was probably more political than money focused. an angry tea party convention, like the previous one in Feb., before elections could end up doing more harm.. the organizers remark was quite comical, 'we are the only ones who know what the real world is like.' at some point, they're going to see that anger has some really nasty side effects.
or the s h i t
has floated to the top the sludge?
Not a nice title for a poem but certainly apt for Tea Party half breeds
I hope the public is becoming aware that the Tea Party has brought about the nomination of mostly unqualified (to put it politely) candidates for the Senate, the House and for governor in a number of states. I can't believe that many will support the likes of Christine O'Donnell or Sharron Angle or Carl Paladino. Truth and reason will out.
The GOP killed it - too much attention away from their candidates so close to the election. At this point, they're focused on merging the two brands.
You didn't really think the Tea Party was an actually separate entity, did you?
Well, they have plenty of corporate money from over-seas to help them.
And of course, they still have the radio air-waves.
The tv has been seeing some swing lately....Maddow is getting fierce!

"..._Worst of all, this is a vision that says even though America can't afford to invest in education or clean energy; even though we can't afford to care for seniors and poor children, we can somehow afford more than $1 trillion in new tax breaks for the wealthy. Think about it. In the last...

Is the Tea Party movement good or bad for the Republicans in this election cycle?

This week in Michigan enough Tea Party delegates showed up at a Republican meeting to elect delegates to the party's nominating convention for the election in November to defeat the current Republican party chairman's bid to be elected a delegate. This strikes me as a cataclysmic event for the...

I have been watching the Yahoo boards and people are furious at the Republicans, especially the Tea Party. They are getting the lion's share of the blame for the debt downgrade. Here's why:1. Obama wanted a grand plan. The Republicans rejected it.2. Obama wanted shared sacrifice including taxes for...

Tea Party activists in the House of Representatives want to shut down the U.S. government. They say it'll teach America who really is in charge. What's more, they say that not passing a federal budget by the Oct. 1 deadline will cut government back to the levels imagined by the founding...

I've been on the fence about the TEA Party. My husband, who is much more conservative than I am, fully supports the TEA Party and has attended rallies. I, however, have not. I do agree with several of their points, but I've been trying to research the accusations of racism and homophobia. No claims...
