As we head into the New Year, I thought this might be an appropriate time for an homage to two of my favorite things: the Tea Party and craft beer!

Approaching the 5th anniversary of the start of the Tea Party movement, media types and establishment politicos are very upset that we...

There has been a not too subtle attempt this week to smear the Tea Party as racist and violent in connection with the 50th Anniversary of the assassination of John F. Kennedy.

What does the Tea Party have to do with the assassination?

It’s an outgrowth of the discredited and time-worn eliminationist narrative, that the modern...

While looking for something else, I stumbled up this interview by Prof. Glenn Reynolds and the Insta-Wife of Andrew Breitbart from February 2010.

It may be the best interview of Andrew I’ve ever seen.

And it’s as relevant, if not more so, now as it was back then.

Meghan McCain says her Arizona senator dad is “depressed” and “frustrated” with the tea party faction of the Republican Party, which she called “the hyper-conservative wing.”

The comments were part of Meghan’s promo for her new show, which no one will watch, Raising McCain.

We’ve seen years of offensive name calling and antics from Alan Grayson.

He called a Federal reserve lobbyist a whore, and most famously claimed that Republicans want people to die quickly.

Grayson’s latest, however, is his worst yet, via NRO, Dem Rep. Uses Burning KKK Cross to Depict Tea Party:

I think ABC has been reading Think Progress and Media Matters too much, because as with most of the mainstream media, ABC can’t figure out why the Tea Party is not toeing the Wall Street and big business line on Obamacare and the debt ceiling.

The demise of the Tea Party movement has been predicted since its inception in early 2009.  There has been a non-stop demonization of the movement led by Democrats and the media, but frequently joined by party Republicans.

There also have been many misleading headlines based on cherry-picked polling, as I demonstrated recently, ...

This group of Tea Party supporters in Ithaca decided to carry signs outside Republican Tom Reed’s office, which must have felt like a poke in the eye to most Ithacans.

Hey, poking Ithaca in the eye is my job!

I’m not overly enamored of the complaint that Obama will negotiate with the Iranians, Syrians and Russians, but not with Republicans.

The complaint sounds a little whiny.

But it does prove a point. A point that I made long ago about how Obama treats the Israelis and other friends of the U.S., like ...

A comment by Chuck Schumer yesterday over Senate Democrats’ refusal to pass House funding bills for the NIH’s clinical trials for children with cancer, and similar House bills for veterans and national parks, pretty much sums up how Democrats’ seething hatred of the Tea Party movement has clouded Democrats’ thinking and ability to...

I covered earlier the negative spin Gallup put on its recent Tea Party polling.  What showed a stable support/opposition over the last two years — including a drop in opposition — was spun as a negative only by comparison to three years ago.

Gallup could have titled its report “No real change...
