The tea party movement is mostly an electoral tool for Republicans and the corporate elite. But that doesn't mean they're not real, down home low information voters, easily manipulated with talking points and fear. Having said that, nothing could prepare me for the following video.

Raw Story: Democratic consultant Tyler Jones showed up at a South Carolina Tea Party rally on Monday, camera in hand. As reported by Dave Weigel at Slate, Jones “interviewed around 25 people total and probably 75 percent of them said they were supporting Donald Trump, and just about every single person is a birther.”...six minutes of pure Tea Party delerium.
