23. The Tea Party was bankrolled to disrupt Democratic Town Hall meetings
It was created and nurtured to be the Party of No. The loudmouths who took their guns to the meetings declaring their 2nd Amendment rights like anyone was threatening them. They were awakened by Sarah Palins Banshee Siren Songs and whipped into a frenzy of hate by the Koch brothers minions and bused in to be loud and brainlessly rude.
