Follow Up To Yesterday's Post

A perfect dovetail to yesterday's post:

"In their opinions on policy and politicians ranging from President Barack Obama to Sarah Palin, elites in Washington have a strikingly divergent outlook from the rest of the nation, according to a new POLITICO poll released Monday. Obama is far more popular while Palin, the former Alaska governor, is considerably less so. To the vast majority of D.C. elites, the tea party movement is a fad."

And . . . 

"America is struggling with a sputtering economy and high unemployment — but times are booming for Washington’s governing class. The massive expansion of government under President Barack Obama has basically guaranteed a robust job market for policy professionals, regulators and contractors for years to come."

All created w/ funny money putting the rest of us and our grandchildren in debt for generations to come. It is criminal. More here.

Hey Michael. Yeah, a fad kinda like the internet. ;o)

I think the Tea Party is just a manifestation of a political mood that is always present to one degree or another. The Tea Party now has an official caucus in Congress.
