As Virginia Thomas tells it in her soft-spoken, Midwestern cadence, the story of her involvement in the "tea party" movement is the tale of an average citizen in action.

"I am an ordinary citizen from Omaha, Neb., who just may have the chance to preserve liberty along with you and other people like you," she said at a recent panel discussion with tea party leaders in Washington. Thomas went on to count herself among those energized into action by President Obama's "hard-left agenda."

I know that the spouses of Supreme Court judges are free to become involved in politics, but I think this may be a first.

Perhaps the good scj should decide to resign since apparently his family feels nothing but contempt for the government.

Wow. Just wow.

So anyone involved with the Tea Party movement has "nothing but contempt" for the government? Does that apply to the Coffee Party as well? Or anyone who would deign to question the current administration?

There were no problems until 20 Jan 2009 when a black man, a centrist at that, became president.
Funny how all the anti-govt rhetoric started immediately after the election and not during the Bush administration.
Yeah, funny that.

Well, you know, the US was Utopia right up until that moment, We had no national deabt, were not involved in any wa$teful wars of choice, and NOone had bought houses far beyond their means leading up to financial crisis. All that and other things occured only after 01/20.2009.

So we're back to the Tea Party being racists?

You might want to give Mrs. Thomas a heads-up that her husband is black.

Black only in skin tone. What is going on or not between his ears is what matters.

Yeah. Hard to play the race card when he's black and she's white.
