    On another thread Wry Catcher suggested Tea Party as a Jeopardy Question. Good Idea so here it is.

    I think of smaller government with less power and more power at the state level. I also think Ron Paul.

    I think of ordinary people who got scared of the increased debt and deficits and the direction the country is going in and decided to do something about it. God bless 'em, they might have saved this country from an economic disaster.

    I think amateur hour. When they turned down 3-4 trillion in cuts because of 1 trillion in revenue enhancements, S&P realized it was amateur hour in Congress, because any decent economist will tell you we can't get out of this by cuts alone.

    I hear Tea Party and immediately think of people who are sick of the spending in DC. That are sick of the Clowns who are supposed to represent us.

    Dupe or Simpleton?? TDM comes immediately to mind.
