Update:  Big Oops – Business Insider says Reince Preibus did not say self-deportation “racist”.  See new post as to how RNC Press Office had confirmed the quote was accurate, but now says word was “hurts us” not “racist.”

We’ve been pushing back since the election against the meme that the Tea Party movement was dead.

Following the unfolding scandal of the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of the Tea Party, I keep the following thought in mind:

Neither party in Congress can be relied upon to satisfactorily resolve this issue.  They created the IRS, fund the IRS, and oversee the IRS.  All of this abuse happened on their...

From Rob:

Dear Prof. Jacobson:

I hope that all goes well. Our protest at the Jersey City, NJ IRS HQ had a pretty modest turnout, and none of us brought signs, but one of us had a...

At congressional hearings yesterday, it was revealed that the IRS planted a question at an ABA meeting in order to give Lois Lerner of the IRS the opportunity to get ahead of the pending Inspector General Report and make it seem as if the IRS had voluntarily disclosed the targeting of Tea...

The death of the Tea Party movement has been greatly exaggerated.

It wasn’t that long ago that the death of the Tea Party Caucus in Congress, a sure sign that the movement had fallen apart, was celebrated by the great intellect of MSNBC:

So he decided to respond:

No way I was going to let this one go without a rebuke.
