    Hot Air Blog Archive Palin to tea partiers: You’re going to have to choose between the parties

    The Neocons are squirming in their seat and trying to bargain with the Tea Parties after this:

    CNN Political Ticker: All politics, all the time Blog Archive - CNN Poll: Who are the Tea Party activists - Blogs from CNN.com

    Independents my ass.

    Oh, the amount of comedy gold from this is too good. :lol:

    Most independents are merely embaressed republicans.

    I'd say it's more like disenfranchised Republicans. Many Republicans will admit they don't like the direction their party has moved in, and welcome the Tea Party Movement if it can help change that course. It remains to be seen if that's a real possibility.

    I relish my place as a disenfranchised former GOPer. Instead of one, I got two big government tax and spend bands of organised thieves that I can cuss. Partisans only get to cuss one.

    I think most independents are liberals who are too ashamed to call themselves liberal.
    And I can't say I blame them.

    Yep pretty much a different way to say the same thing. Without being quite as critical as I was.

    I've never voted Republican in my life. I voted for Kerry, and I voted in our Democratic governor in Arkansas. I didn't vote for McCain (or Obama). I supported Hillary for President, and I supported Gore in 2000 (but was a year too young to vote).

    And at this point, I find myself attached to more moderate Republicans than moderate Democrats.
