Re: “A look at Charlotte's Tea Party

In terms of numbers, I'd say the Rick Santelli rant was probably a real "jump start" for the Tea Party - but it's also true that the ideas have been brewing for decades. Nothing about the Tea Party call for "small government" or "lower taxes" seems novel to me; I've been politically active for 30 years, pushing those very ideas.

What was novel was the massive $800 billion bailout, the huge opposition - Congress reported calls were 90 to 1 against - and the feeling of betrayal when Congress went ahead in spite of massive public opposition.
