Karl Rove's Tea Party

What was this tea party about again? It appears it was a pathetic display by the right wing (Fox Noise et al) to tap into the frustration and worry Americans have about the economy and channel it toward two minutes of misdirected hate at the Obama administration.

Who is fueling this nonsense? Karl Rove, for one. What is his agenda? He writes in the Wall Street Journal:

If that anger persists, it may give Republicans a leg up in the 38 gubernatorial elections over the next two years, as well as in key state legislative races that will determine which party redraws congressional and state legislative districts after the 2010 census.
Thanks to Southern Beale for this link to Sinfonian who took advantage of 'open mic' at his local party:

"Cheer if you make less than $250,000 per year!"


"Your taxes are going to be cut under the current budget! Congratulations!"

"YEA!! Huh? Wait...what'd he say?"

"If you are going to argue about more taxes and less spending, place the blame where the blame belongs, and that is squarely in the hands of the Republican Party and the Bush Administration."

Beautifully done.
