    I watched C-SPAN yesterday morning. Tea Bag ...tea bag. I watched the interviews and the opening statements from the podium. I turned on C-SPAN again at 6 PM and saw re-runs of the morning. OK... the Hippy looking fat guy with the black suit with the no tie dark sweater look seemed to make some sense. He is at least not ignornant of the issues and he tries to tone down the wingnuts. He stands alone in that movement against the storm of stupidity.

    I had even worked up enough curiosity to see Sara. It was 7 PM and then it happened. This used car salesman stood up to get the crowd prepared for Palin and he took off into Big Lie after Big Lie ...0ne after the other ...."The Obama thug community organizer"..."The death panels" .... The organizers of this event did well to hide the escential character of you tea bagger pieces of shit but that guy brought it all back into the light of day. Piss on Sara Palin..I'm glad I didn't waste my time. Piss on you tae bag morons...you waste all of our time when you are mentioned in the media or anywhere. The only thing you are good for is to syphon off power from the fundis running the GOP. You assholes had better stay out of Seattle. I will do my best to help ruin any chance you have at an elected position here.

    I know you have a certain point of view on things but there is a unique kind of revolution happening in this country that aims to restore a lot of principles that our country was founded on. The result will be something that neither the republican or democrat party expects or will even like but I believe most Americans will like.

    An inveterate anti-Semite like Huggy can only see things one way. And needless to say, it's the wrong way.

    Don't feel bad. According to the commercials on TV, this should help your condition:

    Damn, you're not really an anti-semite are you?

    Jews vote Democratic. Don't be that way.

    The new face of partisan hackery

    "Hide your antisemitism so you don't scare Jewish People away from our political party"

    Sheesh... this hyper-partisan nonsense is getting ridiculous.

    I would have liked to believe this, and for a time it seemed like it may have been true, but no longer. The largest swaths of the movement have been co-opted by nothing more revolutionary or unique than the GOP.

    There are many individual participants in this "tea party movement" with valid populist grievances against the sleaze and corruption of both parties in Washington, but it's all being directed towards a pedestrian goal that has nothing to do with any of those sentiments: namely, the re-empowerment of the Republican Party in completely unchanged form. Palin last night righteously condemned the Wall Street bailout even though she (like Glenn Beck) supported that bailout. She wears the banner of "freedom" and "individual liberty" even as she mocks the notion that our laws and Constitution -- the instruments by which we restrain government power -- ought to limit what the President can do in the name of national security; cheers for the omnipotent Surveillance State; and demands that her religious beliefs form the basis of government intervention in people's lives. She rails against government debt while supporting the policies largely responsible for its explosion: namely, limitless increases in military spending and endlessly expanded wars and imperial policies (primarily in the Middle East and oh-so-coincidentally aimed at Muslims).

    In sum, Sarah Palin loyally supports virtually every policy that defined the uniquely disastrous Bush/Cheney first term. The "tea party movement" depicts itself as some sort of novel and independent force in American politics, and the establishment media -- which patronizingly equates far right extremists with "real Americans" and is petrified of accusations of "liberal bias" -- plays along. But exactly the opposite is true. It's just an appendage of the Republican Party: more dogmatic and boisterous than party leaders would like, but nonetheless devoted to the purest of partisan goals of restoring the same GOP to power that ran the country into the ground over the last decade. All of the GOP leaders whom this movement seeks to empower are the same ones who subserviently supported almost every Bush/Cheney policy for eight straight years. As is true for Palin, Fox News is this movement's primary sponsor because Fox, which craves a return of the Bush years, knows that the "tea party movement" will promote that goal by re-imaging the destroyed GOP brand into something fresh, pretty and new. Hardened GOP loyalists like Rush Limbaugh, Bill Kristol, National Review and Sean Hannity are perfectly at home in the "tea party movement" because its principal effect is to empower the standard right-wing GOP politicians and policies they've long craved.

    George Bush and Dick Cheney are too widely discredited for anyone trying to appeal to the unconverted to praise their rule directly. The GOP needed new packaging, a new face. The "tea party" movement is just a respectable way for love of GOP dogma to once again be safely expressed.

    As proof, consider this FOXNews.com - Tea Party Movement Produces New Political Organization
    Though there are well-intentioned people with legitimate grievances within it, this tea party is now nothing more than directed faux-populist rabble rousing designed to put the GOP, the party in power so recently and responsible for the majority of our crippling debt and the corporate giveaways and endless wars that maintain it, back into power. It's not libertarian, it's not conservative, it's not a revolution, it's just the furthest right elements of the same old Republican Party.

    So, exactly how long did it take to sell out the Tea Party "movement"?
