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.

That’s the opinion of conservative columnist Fox News Michael Barone

Conservative political analyst Michael Barone told an audience in Washington that Republicans put “too many” tea party “wackos, weirdos and witches” on the ballot this year, costing them seats in the U.S. Senate.

“Republicans lost two seats — net, you know — in a year of tremendous opportunity, and I think one reason is bad candidates. The tea party, brings some talented people into politics — think of Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson for example — but it also brings some wackos and weirdos and witches, and we put too many of them on the ticket.”
