    that tea baggers do tend to be economically advantaged. But that's not been my experience in Northern California. Might be those "other" tea baggers...

      a week ago about a poll that said the Teabaggers
      were more economically advantaged and had a higher educational level than most Americans.

      I found it hard to believe, The education part.

      •  That's probably true (4+ / 0-)

        I remember Deoliver47, I believe, mentioning this fact as well. But my main point is that many bilingual folks or new immigrants struggle with English, and they are who we're showing support to, so saying (as so many do... I in NO way am coming down heavy on you here)... "Tea baggers can't spell," is slightly counterproductive, because so many of my own immigration march sign photos are rife with misspellings too. I don't want non-native speakers to feel self-conscious about that either. I'm glad as HELL they're expressing themselves.

        That make sense?

        And this area, the tea baggers are a fringe group. BUT, my district is 75% Blue.
