Humble Teabaggers

At least they're level headed:
In doing so, the Florida Tea Partiers become just the latest to sound the alarm about what they see as the increasing co-optation of a grassroots movement by political insiders. "We have a very successful movement, similar to the Civil Rights movement, or women's suffrage. And we have a political entity that's trying to take advantage of that," one of the plaintiffs, Everett Wilkinson, told TPMmuckraker in an interview. "They're trying to take that success and momentum and hijack it for their own political and/or personal needs."
I don't really remember civil rights groups suing each other to acquire the most profitable name for their groups, but maybe that's me.

  2. the District of Columbia tea party movement is on the rise

  3. I guess they couldn't think of any historically successful conservative grassroots movements to compare themselves too. The temperance movement and the Ku Klux Klan just don't make the cut.
