John Kerry is mad that the media continues to cover the Tea Party. I mean, how dare opponents of our Great Leader be heard! The entire argument of the Tea Party is that government is too large. Declaring that "absurd" doesn't make it so. Things undefined by this "intellectual" include what exactly is legitimate and what is not.
I honestly want details from the man so I can chew him apart, but he won't give any. Basically, he's just mad that there is a groundswell of popular support against big government, which is a huge problem for Kerry since he is a proponent of that very same big government.
One final thought: the media, to the extent that it has reported on the Tea Party, hasn't exactly been favorable. The Tea Party has grown in strength largely on the Internet, through blogs and tweets and social networking. Many Tea Partiers read books like Hayek, Rand, Rothbard, Mises, Nozick, and Mill.
We're not going away, even if the media decides to not cover us. In fact, that would probably help our cause, because it would be a blatant act of censorship in order to protect the Democratic Party from criticism it cannot defend itself from.
