Newsweek blogger Ben Adler thinks the national media are giving the Tea Parties gentle treatment.

Adler complained that a recent Associated Press article, "Enraged to Engaged: Tea partiers explain why," failed to examine the ideology of the demonstrators in the grassroots conservative movement.

No gold star or anything? Dang.
What Tea Party??
I’m kind of glad they are misunderstanding the movement so much. It’s like camouflage. If they want to waste a bunch of time looking for a “leader” let them. What they don’t know they can’t poison/lie about/shut down, etc.
How many ya got?
A thousand pardons, sahib. "Newsweak" indeed.
(though, I have been partial to New-speak)
Five gold stars... and your name on the blackboard for a week...
I suggest this fella learn to read. The signs at the Tea party tell it all. So do the speakers.
The problem with the left and the media is that they think everyone is like them. They have to lie and hide what their real agenda is and it is hard for them to believe that the Tea parties do not have to lie.
