"Tea and Crackers"

Matt Taibbi wrote a scathing piece about the tea party in the lastest issue of Rolling Stone.  I've been thinking about it ever since.  Here is the key passage, though the whole thing is great:

At the voter level, the Tea Party is a movement that purports to be furious about government spending — only the reality is that the vast majority of its members are former Bush supporters who yawned through two terms of record deficits and spent the past two electoral cycles frothing not about spending but about John Kerry's medals and Barack Obama's Sixties associations. The average Tea Partier is sincerely against government spending — with the exception of the money spent on them.
