It's stuff like that that has caused me to withdraw somewhat from following politics. I can't even discuss it casually with my extended family.
All this Tea Party stuff is, frankly, race based. Fear of the black President. And that fear + hatred is manifesting itself in some appalling ways, such as the harassing of the man with Parkinson's in the video clip above - (of course that happened in my state, ugh!)
Most of these people self-identify as Christians too.
Jesus would have acted like that?
