So Much For The 'Tea Party' Being All About Fiscal Issues


Rachel Maddow takes the inside the beltway conventional wisdom to task that the "tea party"-- or as I like to call them the astroturf Republican re-branding effort -- were somehow going to be all about the economy and fiscal issues. As she clearly shows in her chart with just how many anti-abortion laws have been passed since the election, it's still all just guns, gays and god with these people.

They may have managed to get the Bush-name-stink off of them by latching onto this phoney third party movement, but it's still the same old GOP and it's now controlled by its TeaBircher rabid right-wing base.
