    The ones I know here in the STL area who were the "pioneer" Tea Partiers weren't duped, I'm convinced they were bought and paid for. Whether they knew the backstory or just took the money to parrot the line is debatable, but they were calculating right-wingers who NEVER did anything out of conviction, expediency was their byword. Someone (Kochs?) told them exactly what to say and do for maximum effect. Bet on it.
