“The Tea Party movement is mostly famous for its flamboyant fringe. But it is now more popular than either major party. According to an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, 41 percent of Americans have a positive view of the Tea Party movement. [It’s] a large, fractious confederation of Americans who are defined by what they are against. They are against the concentrated power of the educated class. They believe big government, big business, big media, and affluent professionals are merging to form a self-serving oligarchy—with bloated government, unsustainable deficits, high taxes, and intrusive regulation. A year ago, Obama supporters were the passionate ones. Now the Tea Party brigades have all the intensity.”
