    Thanks Gallup for reconfirming what most of us already knew.

    I wonder how many Communist Party members overlap the Democrat base? Probably an equal percentage.

    You are mistaken:

    "The teaparty is an independent grass roots movement that is not aligned with any single party and recognizes no leader."TM

    I'm pretty sure more Communist Party members vote for the Communist Party.

    Yes... all 15 of them.

    Hey comon. Stop that nonsense!!! They're overwhelmingly rightwing Republicans who will overwhelmingly vote Republican in the fall...

    ...how the hell did you get from that to labeling them the 'GOP base'??!!

    :lol::lol::lol::lol:

    (The real question is, how did THEY get from that to claiming it wasn't the case?)

    I bet you didn't intend to characterize the Tea Partiers as the rightwing equivalent of Communists...

    ...but you did.

    Where are all the teabaggers to tell us that we are sooooo wrong and then chant the war cry: "Wait until November, motherfuckers!"?
