The outrageous persecution of the Tea Party is an opportunity.
Take some advice, Tea Party people:
The Tea Party has been demonized in the last few years. Crazy, violent, racist, stupid... whatever.
Let's see how well these people leverage the persecution experience into a new image.
I suspect they will have a hard time. Why would they know how to exploit a serious crisis like the masters? They were victimized, but can they be the new victims that everyone wants to embrace?
