Oops! Someone Spilled The Tea

The Siren has written on and off about some of the more extreme tea party groups in the area - folks who are clearly interested in a lot of other issues besides taxes and smaller government. While they may not represent the entire movement, they consider themselves to be teabaggers thru and thru.

Abe Sauer spent the last two years attending Tea Party meetings and workshops primarily in Wisconsin. He has written a detailed summary of what he saw and heard as well as his thoughts on who the Tea Party is and where they are going.

His experience mainly confirms what a whole lot of people already suspected: white fundamental Christians who are long on complaints and short on action.  Read his report: What I Learned in two years at the Tea Party.
