Tea Party Trends

For once, Newt Gingrich was right. He predicts the Tea Baggers will become the militant faction of the Republican Party. Except he got his verb tense wrong. Present tense, Newt, present tense.

We hold these truths to be self-evident: Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann, Tea Bag queens.

"The problem with the tea party movement, besides their almost universal rejection of dentistry, is that they want money for nothing and chicks for free. They want a deregulated free market and their jobs to stay here in the US; they want guaranteed health coverage regardless of preexisting conditions without a big government mandate; they want to call themselves tea baggers and people to keep a straight face.” Bill Maher

MSNBC's Chris Matthews asked if Wall Street is like Acorn for Republicans. He might not be joking.

Why haven’t the Tea Baggers organized a march on Wall Street? After all, the greedy fat cat bankers are the people who caused trillions of our 401k funds to evaporate.

Curious.

The TB's are confused about Wall Street, too. They know they're supposed to be against everybody who presently has power, but they know the unbridled free market can't operate without a...um, market. So they're just inarticulately pissed on this subject. It's not the only subject they are inarticulate about (that would be most of their subject matter), but it's one of the few about which they aren't making continuous noise.
