A counter-revolution — not merely a reaction against Obama, although he was certainly the trigger, but a nationwide backlash against politics as-as-usual as it has been defined over the past seventy years.

‘ The Tea Parties are a political phenomenon the likes of which we have not seen in our lifetimes, one that occurs once every century or so. It is exhilarating to witness.’

‘Give credit where it’s due: they are throwing everything they can against it — racism, classism, homophobia, Palin-Beck-Limbaughism — but the monster just keeps coming.’

‘Since the 1930s, American politics has been a madhouse of Fair Deals, New Frontiers, Great Societies, and Green this-and-thats, topped with a genuine, certified messiah to lead us all into the Promised Land. Liberalism was converted into an ideology, much like the other ideologies of the epoch, and with similar flaws: fanaticism, political blindness, and dedication to an invisible, ever-receding goal.’

‘The Reagan Revolution was effective at setting the leftists back, but by itself, it could not overcome a half-century’s worth of abuse. Gingrich had a serious impact but failed in the end due to lack of follow-through.’

‘It is this establishment that the Tea Party counter-revolution is working to overthrow.’

‘This process is not limited to a single election cycle — it’s a long-term program. It is a counter-revolution.’
