  1. “Come Senators, congressmen, please heed the call,
    don’t stand in the doorway, don’t block up the hall…
    For the times they are a-changin’ ”
    Bob Dylan, back in the 60’s

  2. Considering that he’s writing about the movement that valiantly elected a pro-torture Senator in Mass., I’m less positively disposed. If a mass movement doesn’t believe in the rule of law, it isn’t a democratic movement.

  3. Since you read this, does that mean your mind is open, or do you still “know” what the Tea Party movement represents?

    I’m not a regular goer to these events, but it annoys me when bloggers claim they “know” what drives this movement and who is in this movement, etc. This is true of some so-called conservative bloggers and columnists too because they seem to enjoy acting all superior to the Tea Party folks. Anyway, most of what is “known” seems to be just second-hand blather from the regular media. And even Fox News has a tendency, in its “reports” about the movement, to fail to understand it as more than trite anger. I’ve studied the positions of many of the movement’s branches. I’ve attended a local group that was born out of the movement. And frankly, little of what I’ve read here or anywhere comes close to capturing the true heart of the Tea Party.
