Outlandish Outfit

Oh, how the Democrats are shaken by the outlandish outfit known as the Tea Party!

47% reported that their own views were closer to the Tea Party than to Congress - 46% reported that the average Tea Partier is more ethical than the average member of Congress
Demonize at your peril, oh Democrats!
Democrats cannot win elections without capturing the votes of independent-minded swing voters. And that is where writing off the tea party as a bunch of racist kooks becomes self-destructive. The tea party outrage over health-care reform, deficit spending and entitlements run amok is no fringe concern. And it is insulting to all voters to suggest that criticism of President Obama, even by people who want to throw him out of office, is motivated by racism.
They already made this mistake last August.
