I just thought of an unbelievable parrallel between the Tea Party and the WI teachers unions. Both vote for politicians. Both have demands of the politicians. Shouldn't liberals admire, then, the efforts of the Tea Party to rally together like-minded people to attempt to use collective bargaining? After all, the people of the Tea Party obviously have massive voting power, as we saw in November. The politicians want the Tea Party's vote. The Tea Party wants something (or, should I say, "less somethings") in return. Isn't that...collective bargaining at it's finest? Then why does the left hate the Tea Party......but adore the unions?
