Once again the Tea Party makes national headlines.
And once again the message (government overspending) is overshadowed by the messeger (Ann Coulter).
I'm not knocking Ann - she's politically to the right of me, but I enjoy reading her columns *because* I don't always agree. I think she is intelligent, acerbic, pointed - and an even worse publicist for the Tea Party than Sarah Palin.
And that's saying something!
She exemplifies the Left point-of-view that the Tea Party is an ignorable whacky fringe Republican thing. Which is odd - the Republicans have been spending like drunken sailors on shore leave for years, and they're only now getting in bed with the Tea Party because they're both anti-Obama.
If the Tea Party wants political traction, they'll need some Dem support too.
