#1 Well, when viewed by a RINO, it probably does look like "the hyper-conservative wing" cause they actually have principles (ie adherence to the Constitution, balance budgets). I'm sure to the Socialists, he looks the same or a useful idiot. The problem is perspective. Most of the non-Beltway Blend Party types think John and his cohorts are just, at best, the Stupid Party - "Look I'm just like the guys across the aisle".

#6 Ref #4.

The yawning boy in his one-piece sleeper was the creation in 1907 of Burr E. Giffen, an eighteen year old artist who worked in the advertising agency employed by Fisk Rubber Corporation. The slogan "Time to Re-Tire" and the drawing of the sleepy boy were copyrighted in 1910 and first appeared in an advertisement in the Saturday Evening Post on March 7, 1914. In 1918, another professional artist, Edward M. Eggleston, made an oil painting of the boy. Fisk spent millions of dollars publicizing the trademark, which was registered in over ninety countries. Publicity releases prior to 1928 said the Fisk boy, sometimes called "America's Favorite Son", ranked among the leading trademarks and was as well known universally as "The Little Dutch Boy". In 1930 the Fisk boy"s yawn was changed to a smile, but in 1934 he was changed back to his sleepy self. The original artwork had been so changed by all the retouching that in 1941 the Metropolitan Museum was commissioned to restore the painting. A number of artists were consulted as to whether a new boy should be painted, but they were unanimous that the charm of the original could not be improved upon.

#10 I find it interesting that a part of the party that wans fiscal accountability, less government, less intrusion, is viewed as radical. Along with the vilification of anyone who feels our government should act responsibly is just astounding. When both sides are so corrupt that they attack together against the Tea Party, we know the Tea Party is making headway.

I think we all now know how our founding fathers felt before the revolution or how the peasants of France felt during the time of Marie Antoinette.

#12 The party needs to be dissolved and started over. We need folks in DC who believe the betterment of America is more important than their party.

#15 Most Statesmen - after running and losing for the top spot, leave the limelight. McCain is no Statesman. He loves his Mavericky image, the press accolades (except when he ran against their Demi-God) and all the attention he gets as the MSM-anointed "Republican face".

#18 "Well John-Boy, the Tea Party WAS in response to statesmen like you."

I will restate what I said yesterday slightly differently...The Tea Party was in response to those people in the Republican Party who have a conscience. Clearly the Tea Party caucus has no conscience and no brains. God, I hope the Republicans run on the Tea Party platform...they will be out of office for another 8 years LMAO....

Sorry, Jerkface, I am quite certain that the average Tea Party member personally donates to charity an order of magnitude higher percent of income than the top half of the Democratic party, and significantly more than the typical Republican. They just understand that you cannot spend other peoples' money forever.

Seriously, dude. Is this your A game? If you hang around here long enough, you will notice that the prized qualities are insightful analysis, wit and the ability to spin up a good rant. All we have seen so far could come from a Web-based Insult Generator.

Personally, I find it curious that an alleged Canadian has such a hardon for the Tea Party, given they are not exactly a threat to your way of life.

#24 And my contention as yesterday was that the death toll rung up by the Socialist left in the 20th century demonstrates they never had a conscience. They're their own god.

#27 The whole of the left argument is to make up a lie and repeat it, no matter how many facts to the contrary are presented. It worked for Goebbels, a historical socialist of note.
