TFD Opinions: Don't Blame the Tea Party; Blame John Boehner

The Tea Party is a concentrated majority of individuals that have essentially used corporate cash to rebrand themselves as an anti-tax movement even though they're the same right wing conservatives that always existed at the fringe of the Republican Party. There's nothing new about the right of the party trying to pull the party as far toward conservative ideals as possible. It's certainly didn't appear out of nowhere in 2008-2009 and there's no truth to the claim that their members come from all sides of the political spectrum. Despite their minority status, they've essentially commandeered the political process and are holding up the debt ceiling increase out of some apparent mix of principle and insanity. Despite all that, they're not really the blameworthy ones.

TFD Opinions: The American People Want, Know, Think

There are some catchphrases that politicians like to use that just annoy the hell out of me. Back during the peak of the Iraq war, it was "I've talked to the generals." It was noteworthy that the "generals" that the politician spoke to always agreed with exactly what the politician's opinion was. The new phrase is "The American people [verb]." It's not bad enough that politicians pretend to speak for the American people, it's that they're not even telling the truth when they do so.
