What Value, Tea Partiers?

When not being denigrated as 'teabaggers', when not painted with a broad brush by focusing on the nuts any group has, the Tea Partiers can bring great value to the public discourse. For one thing, several of the Tea Partiers I know and have met have an excellent knowledge and grasp of the US Constitution.

I love this grilling a US Representative- a person sworn to uphold the Constitution- gets from a Tea Partier, and the fail as he at first tries to buffalo his way through, then has to confess he doesn't know his basic job description.

Still, the sanctimony and self rightousness of this guy makes me cringe.

I'll forgive this guy's style in order to get his substance. Every time.

I think this may be worse:

Illinois Democrat on O-Care: “I don’t worry about the Constitution on this”

I'll take a self-rightous citizen over an ignorant or willful violator of the constitution any day.
