    Guido has just watched a preview of tonight’s BBC documentary, “Tea Party America”. Surprisingly it did not characterise them all as closet Klu Klux Klan loving creationists – usually the BBC finds the nuttiest looking demonstrator and interviews them as a typical Tea Partier. Probably because Andrew Neil was reporting and didn’t go in with the usual pre-conceived agenda…

    Brillo has been even handed, though he seems wary of Glenn Beck’s populism and suspicious of some Tea Party elements on the fringe. The Washington beltway consensus seems to be that Sarah Palin, the Tea Partier’s sweet-heart, won’t run in 2012, which from an entertainment perspective is a great disappointment. The Tea Partiers will however have an impact this week. Something those of us who think we’re “Taxed Enough Already” will welcome.

    See also: “Tea Party America” tonight at 19:00 on BBC 2. Dan Hannan has been reflecting on the Tea Party phenomenon on his blog.

    I imagine you can watch this online via the BBC website. It may be worth seeing.

    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.
