    Tea party ending tour in capital it loves to hate

    By CALVIN WOODWARD
    Associated Press Writer Apr 15, 1:26 PM EDT

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Tea party activists rallied in the capital they love to hate on Thursday, carrying signs that read "Don't Tread on Me" and "Follow the Constitution." The close of their spirited cross-country tour fell on tax day, a dark marker for the conservative anti-tax movement.

    It's an example of how they love to misapply/confuse metaphors when it hurt the right. To hate (Hate? hatred? a strong word to use, but it serves their purpose) the ways of Washington is the same as "hating Washington".
    Thinking people are onto it for what it is: disinformation, pure and simple.

    Trust your feelings, but not too much. Because thats the path of the Dark Side.

    But we all know there is no bias in the Lame Stream Media.

    Umm, I believe the "hating Washington" line was figurative, not literal.

    As in "I hate Washington, those politicians and bureaucrats are all a bunch of crooks".

    As exemplified in the first line of the article:

    Are they inaccurate in this assessment?

    I don't hate Washington or the people who are employed there. I don't like what they are doing with my country but there is no hate involved.

    Understood, though I notice you seem to use less hyperbole than some of your fellow right-wingers.
