The spark that lit the powder keg of the modern Tea Party

was Santelli's trading floor rant in February 2009 against the auto bailout (I think). He said we should have a tea-party type insurrection to protest out-of-control government. Yes, too bad the establishment has since co-opted the Tea party, but perhaps its remnants will remain to bear fruit after the coming financial collapse.
