Feel free to make substantive comments

Santelli's rant was planted IMO
Santelli's rant may have been encouraged thru conversation with other parties, maybe even the Koch's, but it was not planted. No more than Cramer's "THEY KNOW NOTHING" rant was planted.

You mean people paid to have my political opinions changed? How come I'm immune to the Democratic or the Green Party? Did they not have enough money? Oh my goodness, the Koch Brothers yall

Not to get bogged down in semantics but that is what I was getting at. It certainly was not a spontaneous rant. In fact, Santelli references protests that Koch-affiliated people were already planning.

I just find it hilarious that the author tries to make it sound like tobacco companies were giving millions of dollars a year to CSE


No. He very clearly said they gave millions of dollars over 13 years. How else could he have phrased it?

Guys, did you know that, like, all the car companies are corporations?

What a shock, the small-minded repugs of this board are once again in denial of facts

Substantive comments like the fact that the Boston Tea Party was a major anti-tax protest so it makes sense that an anti-tax group would associate themselves with that event?

Like the fact that the first real tea party protest was in 1975?

Or that Ron Paul had Tea Party events during his run in the 08 GOP primary?

I loved Rand Paul taking down both parties last night. Thanks to whatever started this thing.

Why are liberals so unwilling to accept that the Tea Party was a genuine grassroots thing?

because the narrative is that liberals are the group who protests and does grass root stuff

a grass root conservative movement doesn't fit in their mental narrative, so it must be destroyed

The tea party movement is/was much bigger than the donations of one entity.
If you like guilt by association(facts) I'm sure we can find plenty in the democratic apparatus and support groups.
If you like just raw facts how about the 1st democratic president(Jackson) being a ruthless killer of native americans. But that 'fact' does not lead me to believe that the democratic party is based on the dogma of a racist thug.
Its too easy of a game to play with the large brush decatur uses to sling mud.

It pains me deeply to have to share my country and oxygen with such idiotic dipshits as all the anti-Tea Party agitprop contained in the original post and within this thread. I mean, real, literal pain in my sphincter, like when you're not sure you are going to make it to the toilet, and you have to stop, and consider if you should shite right there where you stand, because another step might be highly explosive in nature. So you stand there horrified, afraid to move, waiting for the pain to abate, hoping the shite shifts just a tiny bit, vividly aware that your gastrointestinal tract is full of barbed wire and razor blades.

I also find it entertaining that much of the Tea Party ideals are promoted in the Federalist Papers. Scandalous.

So it was like "Concerned Citizens for Tort Reform"?

Citizens = insurance companies.
