Same As It Ever Was

It would be nice if reporters would recognize that the Tea Partiers are just the same tribal 27percenter social conservative Republicans that we've always had with us. They don't give a shit about "fiscal issues," and they never did. They might care about tax rates, but they still want their Medicare. They care that their perceived tribe is not in charge, and are animated by the fact that they imagine some other tribe is getting all of the goodies, but that doesn't really have anything to do with "fiscal issues" as we generally understand them. They think their money is going to the "other" because the KenyanMuslimSocialist is in charge.
