Hold the Phone

Now I kind of see this differently. They attempted to co-opt the tea party but what is now happening is that we are co-opting them! Their plan backfired.

The Tea Party is like a stepping stone to the freedom movement in this country. Even if it is somewhat comprised of pro establishment types wanting "some" change, it still is a well spring that we are able to tap into.

In my honest opinion we do not want to be divided from them... after all doesn't that sound like the ol' stratagem "divide and conquer"?

I think We should be considered having a role in the tea-party and that we are the proverbial spearhead and lead the charge.

Let their attempt at co-opting the Tea Party be their biggest mistake. The Tea Party has become a gateway for Mainline Republicans to come on over to our side.
