When Nov. 3 rolls around and all can agree that the pretend, grassroots “Tea Party Movement” is dead, it will have but one accomplishment listed on its headstone: “Made Arizonians Look Like Racist Jerks.”

Of course, the simple fact is that “Tea Party Movement” has mostly been DOA since inception, kept alive by the frantic CPR work done on it by the corporate media. Rarely in the history of American events  has a group of so few gathered so much media attention. Rarely has such an obvious scam permeated the minds of the American people. Rarely has an already-poor political discourse devolved into so many monkeys tossing feces.
