On Morning Joe, Chuck Todd came on for his daily segment where they discuss the upcoming elections and look at some poll numbers and one of the topics they discussed is an NBC News/ Wall Street Journal poll which asked if the Tea Party was good for politics? Note to the media. There is no "Tea Party". I don't know about the rest of you but I'm sick and tired of watching them help the Republican Party with their re-branding effort. They know exactly what they're doing and they know better and they do it anyway.
When we start seeing some of these candidates running as independents with the name "Tea Party" and not Republican behind their name on the ballot, then you can pretend that there is some actual third party movement in America. Until then, they're nothing but the base of the Republican Party that as I've said before, is just trying to get the Bush stink off of the name. They never cared about any of the things they're out there protesting against until the Kenyan usurper got elected and they could have cared less about fiscal responsibility when Bush was breaking the bank and we were invading countries that weren't a threat to us.
They are not a third party movement. Quit pretending they are.
