Out of curiosity, does anyone HAVE a demographic breakdown of Tea Party members?

I'm really curious & yes, I can & will search it myself if I have to - simply wondered if someone already had a link to the info.

Thanx

Keep it up. Such ignorant remarks help keep the conservatives motivated.

My, my... Ms. Whitney might want to check the comparative demographics before spouting...

Clearly nwithout a lick of basic research.

Back 'in the day' - her editor would have reamed her butt - if she HAD a job.

She said she "was empathasizing with the tea party?"

Come on, she was trying to jack up their deomgraphic and try to put them in their place. And then she had the nerve to call the democrats "machievellian."

So if I say that Whitney is just a typical overcompensating airhead bleach-blond female anchor with fake tits and no clue, it is no problem because 'I am empathizing with her'. Sweet!
