We have one BIG thing to learn from the tea party: People all across America are PISSED OFF. When the left and the right both agree that the government does not represent them, that's progress.
People don't join the tea party because they actively like racism and fear, but because they believe the conservative establishment's (attractive, silver-tongued) goons who say "racism and fear will lead us out of this mess". The tea party is preying on people, and leading them away from any sort of real, meaningful solution.

Sorry, I was probably too dismissive, it's just that we keep getting
these people all the time since pretty early - they make it sound like
a provisional Tea Party vs real Tea Party style quarrel.
