The Velvet Tea Party

Apparently, a lot of "progressives" were really, really bummed to hear that Moe Tucker, drummer for the Velvet Underground attended a tea party.

Here's an interview of her views and her attendance.

Money quote............
What are some misconceptions that people have about Tea Parties (and their attendants) in general?

That they're all racists, they're all religious nuts, they're all uninformed, they're all stupid, they want no taxes at all and no regulations whatsoever. Those "arguments" are presented by the Dems in order to keep their base of uninformed voters on their side. In my opinion, as soon as you start name-calling, your opinion is immediately deemed invalid!

Moe obviously does not care about being thought of as a hip artist. What will be interesting is how many people who are angry like moe but afraid to be thought of as non-progressives by their peers or pollsters. I'd bet there is a hidden 5% out there who are pro-obama for show but tea party sympathizers in the voting booth. If I'm right, November will be a monumental route.
