You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.

There are people out there who still eye the Tea Party as a pariah organization because they perceive it as tied to religious organizations.  I have tried to determine from people I talk to--where they are getting that information (other than liberal outlets)?  I don't really get any definite answers.

I am wondering if conservatism is just always going to be tied to some evangelical boogey man in the psyche of many Americans who don't REALLY pay attention?  :shrug:

I have read it here, TOS and a couple other conservative sites that attempt to diminish the anti-tax, small government aspect of the tea party groups while puffing the religious aspects.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

We have one member in particular who always portrays us Tea Partiers as the ubber right and all about social issues and no matter how often this is corrected he always comes back to it.

I doubt Peggy has bothered to talk to a single tea party member. In my years of involvement with the movement, I have yet to meet a tea partier who wants to topple the GOP. If anything, they want to bring the party to its senses. A few want a third party, but none wants to destroy anything.

Hey, Peg: why don't you put down the cocktail and tell us all why Terry McAuliffe would be preferable as governor of Virgina as opposed to that awful, horrible Tea Party guy he's running against?

Peggy is a contemptible inside the beltway type who is entirely too enamored by her own work. Peggy will spew whatever she feels necessary to get invited to parties and to appear on MSNBC.

Noonan appears to be devoid of core principles and I suspect equally lacking in character.
