    I wish they'd stop using "Tea Party"!

    It's "TEA party" as in "Taxed Enough Already"!

    Four boxes keep us free: the soap box, the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box.

  3. #3 I'll vote for an amoeba 
    if it's a conservative amoeba. Personally, I think most of the current crop of politicians already have an intellect on par with an amoeba.

    There's no way to intelligently answer that question in a vacuum.

    Depends on the candidate and the circumstances.

    I would support a Tea Party candidate if they ran as a little "R" republican rather than as a 3rd party at this point. While we Tea Party crowd would love to be a 3rd party and throw tea and taxes overboard, we must remember that in order to do so, you have to board the ship. I think that Mr. Brown understands that aspect of the body politic in America. As a party, the Tea Party movement will fail. As marauding political force and litmus test of a candidate's Constitutional integrity we can shiver the timbers of this ship of state.
