But the tea party wants to pick up the rocks and smack the Republican Party elites over the head with them in order to vainly try to knock some sense into their power-hungry skulls.
When it comes to the Republican Party, the elites seem content to play musical chairs around the big government table, trading spots with the Democrats whenever “We Don’t Get Fooled Again” stops playing, while getting drunk on power and feasting on suckling pork. But the tea party is trying its utmost to put an end to the perennial political games-playing. Regular tax-paying and hard-working citizens are desperately trying to hold the United States government accountable by holding the Republican Party accountable. The Republicans, in turn, are supposed to hold the Democrat Party in check. The GOP apparently wants none of it.
The tea party arrived on the scene with a flurry and a bang, turning up to crash the wild stimulus and bailouts party. It immediately came under attack by the government, the media, the Democrats, even the Republicans. It has been constantly demonized, villainized, and now the GOP wants it neutralized.
Along with its typical shilling for government cheese, the NY Times Magazine will be offering up some salami tactics for all us tea party crackers.
