In a couple of years the term "Tea Party" will go back to referring to a group of ladies sitting around a table sipping tea from little china cups.

Why were there so many sites and organizations online and live within minutes or hours after his rant, leading to a nationwide protest just a week after his rant?

What hasn’t been reported until now is evidence linking Santelli’s “tea party” rant with some very familiar names in the Republican rightwing machine, from PR operatives who specialize in imitation-grassroots PR campaigns (called “astroturfing”) to bigwig politicians and notorious billionaire funders.


Rick Santelli-Koch Industries-Tea Party

An interesting take from the supposedly early days of the Tea Party "movement"...

Ridicule, defame and destroy. That's all the lib's/progressive or what ever their new name will be, can do.

Ohh the irony.

Media Matters -- an organization closely linked with Soros. You can include yourself in that bamboozled herd.

Don't follow. Does Media Matters call itself 'grass roots'? More so, do you incorrectly infer that I cling onto and am also falsely mislead by an organization that calls itself grass roots which is not?
Do you spend way too much time here when you should be taking a class on Philosophy and focusing on fallacies of reasoning?

Your answer should go: no, yes, yes.
