20. I don't know a single soul who thinks the tea party is "favorable."
Most people I know think they are crazy, spitting mad flakes. A few acquaintances (the same ones who say things like "Well, that Ron Paul makes sense...." and aren't fans of unemployment insurance until they lose their jobs) will say they like a plank or two on their platform, but overall? They think they are batshit crazy and racist.

Granted, I live in a left-leaning region, so that clearly affects my reporting, but even the coverage of them up here (for example, when Palin went on that nutty bus tour and managed to gather a few flag-shirt wearing jerks with dick-dos on the Common) the coverage had a "WTF?" quality about it.

Maybe they get a real "Gee, ain't they SWELL" in other parts of the country, but not up my way.
