Tea Party....Still Gooing Strong!One of my favorite "in touch" people is also "Mr. Blogger".....Instapundit Glenn Reynolds.
Today he delivers a look at Tea Partys in his column at The Examiner:
"A year ago, the Tea Party movement didn't exist. Today, it is arguably the most popular political entity in America. The movement is already more popular than the Republican or Democratic parties, according to a recent NBC / WSJ poll .
Even in blue-state California, three in 10 voters identify with the Tea Party movement.
And, of course, Scott Brown's come-from-behind blowout in Massachusetts occurred in no small part because of money and volunteers from the Tea Party movement around the nation.
This is heady stuff -- and, for people in the political establishment, both Republicans and Democrats, it's worrying stuff. If political movements can bubble up from below, and self-organize via the Internet, what will happen to the political class?"Glenn continues in his read-worthy column: THERE IS MORE TO COME!!!
As Glenn states, the DEMs and, to a lesser extent, the GOPs, really would like to poo-poo the Tea Party folk, even after the last three major elections of folks unexpected to win....They would like to. They cannot successfully. The Tea Party is now a fixture, and the November 2010 votes will tell a new tale. I am awaiting the number who challenge the established as completely inexperienced politicians....AND WIN!!!!
