    As a lifelong Democrat, I totally agree!

    The Tea Party is well financed. Wonder by who?

    The original teabaggers were funded by a Koch Brothers front group, since then there have been several splinter groups that are more self funded. Their expenses are pretty low and most of them have become a way to separate the fool from his money.

    The Tea Party would have disappeared ages ago or remained what it already was — primarily white, older, racist Republicans of the most extreme stripe — had it not received funding from the Koch brothers, who wanted to use them to reduce their taxes and regulation.
    The original Tea Party members would have sneered at these people.

    Yeah, all you have to do is look at post-Revoluiton American corporate laws to see what they’d think.

    Don’t forget all the support, and free publicity they got from FAUX Noise during the original “Taxed Enough Already” “Party” rallies!
    Sean Hannity and Billow Reilly were almost orgasmic in their support…
    You KNOW Murdoch was throwing handfuls of cash into the effort as well as the Koch Bros.

    The Tea-Party is nothng new, it’s really nothing more than a repackaged version of the ultra right-wing groups of the Depression era, the Southern Committee to Uphold the Constitution, and the Liberty League,to name just two. Like the Tea-Party, these outfits were bankrolled by big oil. These groups however, were never as successful as the Tea-Party, for a number of reasons.
    They never united in a single front
    Thanks to the tax-code of the 1930s, their backers weren;t nearly as wealthy as they are today.
    Their weren’t nearly as many news outlets back then as there are now, and even the right-wing news organs never openly supported them. William Hearst and Col. McCormick got in the tank for any of them
    And last but not least,
    These outifts were all OPENLY racist

    And yet the ones doing the deregulation has been the left while coming up with more regulations and taxes to hamper American business.

    Interesting that you keep chanting the “Faux News” line, while the ones who are still reporting lies as fact are the liberal lies media.

    @zoidknight

    So when out of 10 Media outlets, 9 report a story one way, and FAUX reports it totally differently, then you believe FAUX is the ONLY one to get it “Right”?
    Have a nice time there in happy fuzzy bunny land, and the rest of us can enjoy our time here in the real world!

    Sheesh. And to think, which the Teabaggers seem singularly unable to do, many of the same people who claim to “love” the Constitution, and be “Patriots™” and “Real Americans™,” and chant “USA! USA!” at every opportunity, now are petitioning to secede from the good old UNITED States… Teh stoopid! It burns!

    This morning, I don’t feel like researching or qualifying sources, and then writing a well thought-out comment. So I’m going to do like zoidknight does and spit out mindless ‘auto-retorts’.

    “I see the kool-aid is strong in you. The only racism that has been going on is from the right. As usual”.

    “And yet the ones doing the deregulation has been the right while coming up with more regulations and taxes to hamper the American middle class”.

    “Interesting that you keep chanting the ‘liberal lies media’ line, while the ones who are still reporting lies as fact are Fox News.”

    “And yet the racism today comes more and more blatantly from the right and right-wing radio lies. Do get your facts straight.”
