The Tea Party is a legitimate movement with valid points to make. It struggles to get a fair hearing. Of course, that's a complaint of all non-PC voices. Commercial interests are far more important to both the Ds and Rs. The case that the Ds are a subsidiary of the teachers unions is not weak. Business, of course, curries favor with whichever party is in power. The Tea Party has no reliable sugar daddy. Yet.

Nope, that's not what he means. He means that the Tea Party was a legitimate movement that has been co-opted by corporate corruption. Founders of the Tea Party say "<current>Tea Party is a Joke" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OmzH5hlsGfo

*Yawn* You mean rich people might be for freedom too? Huh. By the way the tea parties happen a looooooooong time before funding ever got into it. Also where was your criticism of corporations when they were and still are giving money to Dems? Especially when they gave more to Obama than McCain?

Re the Tea Party: without funding, there'd be nothing to lead. The Billionaires Bankrolling the Tea Party http://www.nytimes.com/2010/08/29/op...=1&ref=opinion A Secret Tea Party Donor Revealed http://motherjones.com/politics/2010...aymon-thompson "If tea party leaders jet around the country in a plane donated by a big GOP contributor, are they still "grassroots" activists?" What does it mean? Let me suffice to say that Martin Luther King did not have nearly as much corporate support as this Tea Party movement has.
