One reason I won't party with the Tea Party crowd:

Continued appeals to puerile racist impulses. There's that old line about "giving your money to people with minds that hate." We'll if one wanted me to give money or time to people or groups who trade in racial hatred, you're going to be waiting an eternity - don't even bother. There's plenty that is dysfunctional about our political system that can be discussed and challenged without personalizing things or playing on fear or bigotry. The leaders and rank and file of the Tea Party "movement" or whatever you want to call it have consistently failed to do so.
