The Tea Party and the "TeoCons"
In my most recent CAIVN column, I wrote: 'Among the greatest concerns Tea Party leaders have voiced is the possibility that their movement could be co-opted by "the establishment" in Washington. Among the strongest criticisms of the Tea Party movement is that it already has been. To fully grasp what is really happening in the Tea Party, we have to begin by recognizing that there is no single, monolithic "Tea Party," but many disparate politicians, media personalities, and groups of activists in cities and states throughout the country which claim the Tea Party moniker. It may be more accurate to speak in the plural-- of the "Tea Parties."
So who genuinely exemplifies Tea Party values and who is simply riding the popularity of the Tea Party brand for political gain?'
