    that many, perhaps even a plurality of teabaggers probably operate from racism, I think the thing is even simpler than that.

    The tea crazies hate Democrats, because most Democrats believe that there is a point to government, and that Galt's gulch is not what we want for our communities. They even hate moderate Republicans, but not enough to sustain the rabid protest movement, probably.

    But if you think these kooks won't be out there with teabags dangling from their tricorner hats for the next Democratic President, you're probably dreaming in technicolour. They'll be jumping up and down over Elizabeth Warren. They'll be foaming at the mouth about Hillary Clinton. Or whomever - it doesn't even matter. They will be there.

    •  I agree with you, but for a different reason (0+ / 0-)

      As all of us here and on other progressive blogs have been reading for the last few years, most of the tea party effort has been created/funded by the Koch brothers and their ilk.

      These boys have had a lot of fun playing with their new toys for several years now, and they don't seem to be bored with them yet.  I'm not so sure they're going to want to give them up just because THIS democratic president's term has ended.  Especially since their side isn't looking so good as far as viable candidates are concerned.

      In addition to that, the people they DID stir up with their money and advocates have had a taste of power now, even it it's just the power to disrupt the orderly progress of our nation.

      With that in mind, I, too, think these people(?) will be around for a bit longer than most of would like.
