    Peter Berkowitz: Why Liberals Don't Get the Tea Party Movement - WSJ.com


    "Highly educated people say the darndest things, these days particularly about the tea party movement. Vast numbers of other highly educated people read and hear these dubious pronouncements, smile knowingly, and nod their heads in agreement. University educations and advanced degrees notwithstanding, they lack a basic understanding of the contours of American constitutional government."

    (Emphasis mine.)

    They also lack common sense, cause they ain't one iota of it in DC. That's a fact i reckon.

    I think ( therefore I get myself in trouble!), that those that don't seem to understand what the tea party is really all about, is afraid of losing their cushy jobs with the guberment! Smaller government = fewer jobs for those that want to "rule" over the rest of us! Must be an "elitist" thing!

    The Liberal Elitists get all hung up, and get their frilly panties in a bunch, over the word "Party". They cannot understand the Tea Party is NOT a political party - it is a totally bi-partisan MOVEMENT simply desiring the US Government to honor it's vows and do it's job....... :rolleyes:

    Some Are Ignorant--The Rest Feign Ignorance

    The premise of ignorance on the part of liberals is mostly correct. However, there are some who truly do know the same facts but they pretend that they do not or that they cannot possibly imagine such facts to possibly exist.

    The truly ignorant can be cured by education. As for the rest, they are beneath contempt.
