Looks like these people don't have a clue either.

How about this headline?

Coffee party wants to make politics civil
 Siiiigh. Have any of these people ever been to an actual tea party, or have they been merely listening to the MSM's coverage of it? I'm guessing it's the latter. In fact, I would bet on it. And their so-called "pledge" strikes me as a veiled slam at the Tea Party, implying that they're a bunch of bigots intolerant of other ideas. Who the hell do these people think they are to say that the tea partiers don't value the democratic process? I would think one of the tea partiers' main beefs is that the democratic process is being subverted by various methods, such as the health bill being passed via backroom deals for individual states and arm-twisting in the name of party unity. And how the hell does one explain this?
Jeff Hunter, a 40-year-old editor from Houston, said he too was turned off by the tea party, which he considers “an extremist-type movement.”
Hunter initially supported Ron Paul in 2008, but he also likes some of Obama's ideas.
Done what, again? A Ron Paul supporter considers the Tea Party extremist? I would surely not call Ron Paul an extremist even with his opinions and ideas vis-a-vis things like foreign policy, but the Tea Party's aims are largely congruent with those of Ron Paul. These self-righteous mooks don't know whether they're coming or going! And the Houston Chronicle apparently considers this "Coffee Party" a serious political movement?
