Its obvious to even the most derpiest among us that we, The People, have lost control over our own governance. There is nothing inherently criminal about the process, but rather a slow evolution by monied interests into a system that provide the illusion of choice without actually providing any; one that offers the illusion of representation, but it is patently obvious that when money talks and our Democratic bullshiat walks.

So people turn to anyone appearing offer a way to restore the spirit of our Democracy. People like the Koch brothers are using this angst to separate stupid people from their money.

Great. Another round of the absolute worst people in America funding the candidacies of the absolute stupidest people in America.

"A recent poll broadcast on Fox News on Monday confirmed: Now, 44 percent of likely voting Americans hold a favorable view of the tea party. That's up from 30 percent a few months ago, the Rasmussen poll said."

Sounds unskewed.

You know, people don't seem to give a rat's ass about political funding and who is doing it, at least on a nationally major scale, so I have to wonder why it is that so many groups want to keep their donor lists private. It certainly isn't to hide from voters, as voters generally don't care. Of course, if you're looking at it from a "now where did that money go..." perspective.

Have we considered that the tea party is only bankrolled because bankrolling them just so happens to be a way of laundering money? They might not even care about the politics, it just might be about moving money around without oversight.

The Name: RedTank: The original tea party was originally more libertarian oriented.

it's true, but it's not relivant anymore - I despise what the tea party has become.  The two parties will continue to stifle any real new party movement like they did with the tea party.

Speaking of which, why isn't he being tarred and feathered by the base for keeping this secret for so long?

KiltedBastich: Still butthurt huh? You might want to get that looked at, it's not normal for your ass to pain you for such extended periods of time.


My butt's just fine, thank you.  I'm flattered that it's living rent-free in your head.

There was no one else a sane person could vote for.  Everyone in the Republican primary had several disqualifiers over their heads.

markfara: The Tea Party is concerned with taxes, not social issues, and their membership draws heavily from both parties.

The teabaggers are self-limiting.  Their numbers might bump up for a while as some people on the boundary between loon and sane buy into the "this is the most corrupt administration EVAR"* thing, but when they get a good, close look at just what the teabaggers are saying, the sane will again flee in droves.  They may not vote Democrat, but they won't vote teabagger either.

*Reading "Nixon's Darkest Secrets"--that whole "worse than Watergate" thing the right is trying to pin on Obama is a real stitch.  The book is chaotic, and clearly slanted, but it provides a lot of direct quotes, including from some of Nixon's closest aides, and Nixon himself, that make it clear he considered himself entirely above the law on everything, up to and including burglarly, extortion, blackmail and murder.

But the IRS delaying applications from clearly politically-motivated groups for tax-exempt status is clearly much worse.

This feels like conservative unskewed math.....even if it isn't that means a significant majority of 56% of Americans hold an unfavorable view of the tea party.

I still fail to see how the IRS is a scandal other than some piss poor decisions to lump a group of applications under a bad title of names, for the purposes of making their jobs easier.

Here is something I just noticed.  The Contract with America was the big kick off for the Tea Party and it happened on April 15th, 2009 (aka Tax Day).  The whole point of it was to lead up to the midterm elections in 2010.  Now we are seeing the IRS "scandal" dominate conservative newspapers and the Tea Party is getting a huge influx of money at basically the exact same time leading up to the 2014 midterms.  I am all for this though,  I am sure they will free up some of those nice Old Guard Republican seats given their track record
