This will be fairly short, but I thought it was worth posting here and didn't see any previous posting on it. I got an email today from one of my good lefty friends inviting me to join
The Coffee Party
Just the title gave me a good laugh, so I clicked on through and found the website and this nice little video with this very nice young lady talking about the fact that the Tea Party folks don't represent America and that we need an alternative. I'm a little bit concerned that she and her ideals are a bit too nice, but an alternative to the screaming wackos sure can't hurt.
From their website here's the mission statement:
MISSION: The Coffee Party Movement gives voice to Americans who want to see cooperation in government. We recognize that the federal government is not the enemy of the people, but the expression of our collective will, and that we must participate in the democratic process in order to address the challenges that we face as Americans. As voters and grassroots volunteers, we will support leaders who work toward positive solutions, and hold accountable those who obstruct them.
And here's the video:
Of course, I expect donuts with my coffee - or maybe pie?
Update: Here is an earlier and much more meritorious diary on the same subject. It didn't show up on a tag search and it disappeared without much attention, so I'll leave this one up
