From tea party to afterparty to cocktail party

The tea partiers are finding out the hard way what the Founding Fathers realized over two-hundred years ago: passions have no place in the administration of government.  

In addition, organization stifles passion.  You start to lose sight of the issues that bound you together.  You end up focusing on vote-getting instead of issue vetting.  The immediate issues become who gets to set the agenda. 

The irony, according to a CNN report http://www.cnn.com/2010/POLITICS/02/03/tea.party/index.html?hpt=C1, is that the very capitalist philosophy that most of these people have been railing against, is the same philosophy that is leading the organization of the tea party convention.  You know, money-grubbing capitalists.  Oh well, let’s hope they can put on an after party.
