Tea Party Movement is the Big Winner from Tuesday Election
We knew this already, but now the press and the media are catching on.
From today’s NY Post:
Besides Sen.-elect Scott Brown, the big winner from Tuesday’s stunning upset victory in Massachusetts is the so-called Tea Party movement — grassroots activism sparked by out-of-control federal spending.
Tea Parties popped up around the country last spring, bringing together ordinary folks appalled by the fiscal profligacy on display in Washington.
At first, the mainstream media largely ignored the Tea Party gatherings. Then came the laughter and the smarmy epithet, “teabaggers.”
Next, liberals attacked Tea Party-goers as extremists or racists or neo-Nazis.
While all this went on, the Tea Party folks kept on organizing.
