    The postings of (primarily) CTB would lead one to believe one thing...

    ...But here's some info from a guy who uses real statistics in his article:

    The numbers in the OP are probably "good enough for government work" but I suspect that if one could come up with an similar analysis of the John Birch Society back in the 1960s one would find similar numbers. My point? The JBS and the tea parties both give people an opportunity to blow off steam but nothing will change because of the nature of the American political structure.

    I belong to a local 9/12 group (ie. "the tea party people") and we're looking at new t-shirt designs now. One member suggested one that says "WE HAVE MORE MINORITIES THAN MSNBC, CNN, CNBC, CBS, NBC, ABC, AND NPR COMBINED, AND WE'RE THE RACISTS???" and then our logo.
