Keep On Teabagging!

It’s never a good idea to believe your own propaganda:

Rep. Mike Pence, an Indiana Republican and member of the House Tea Party Caucus, said Democrats are “deluded” if they think the movement is waning. “This is broader and deeper than any of the current labels can capture, and, from all I see, it is just getting started,” he said.

The Wall Street Journal/NBC poll suggests there are limits to the tea-party movement’s popularity. In the new survey, 29% felt very positive or somewhat positive about the tea party, the same level of positive feeling registered in January.

But 44% felt negatively toward the movement, and the percentage of Americans who feel very negatively jumped six percentage points from January, to 30%.

Some 25% of those polled said they supported the tea party, down from 29% in February and 30% in November. The highest percentage on record, 67%, said they weren’t supporters.

I don’t know what’s in those tea bags, but it must be pretty potent.  Pence is high as a kite.

Here are two obvious truths about a government shutdown: 1) It won’t do a single American any good. 2) Republicans are going to get blamed for it, for the simple reason that as soon as they took power in Congress — we got a shutdown.

I love the Tea Party!
