Train in Vain

I find it rich that a writer can speak of Tea Partiers as part of the GOP crazy train when he is one of the writers who built the transcontinental crazyroad that got us to our current state.

You don't have to agree with every Tea Party associated person's statement to understand that the basic desire of all of them is to control out-of-control federal spending. That is the important message here. Not whether any individual position makes sense.

Americans see their dreams come tumbling down. And they try to keep the wolves at bay. But Alterman doesn't understand the Tea Party's point of view. I suppose there is nothing I can do.

Some things you can explain away. If you just stand by your man. Which is all that Alterman is doing.
