"Yes, the Tea Party isn't a political party, but rather a fraction of one. An extremist sliver of the Republican Party, who are just a little nuts in general. But they mean well."______________________________The Tea Party is extreme? Damn the world view of some people is just so whacked that it really is remarkable. The Tea Party is not remotely extreme. They are the folks looking for the simplest straightforward government and a government we can pay for. Folks may not agree with them, but there is not an extremists movement there. You really have to get out the old mirror and take a look at yourself, if those old geezers are your idea if extremists. Again, you may want a different government, but to call them extreme means you have deluded yourself to a fairly remarkable level. Well actually that the MSM has deluded you or led to your delusion. Check your premises folks, reset the dialogue sanity meter.
