Tea Style

The fragile state of the fledgling Tea Party movement, which is
riven with policy disagreements over how its revolt should be managed, appears to have one thing together — posters.

For all its reckless
rhetoric — Americans will be “boiled to death
in the cauldron of the nanny state” — the posters have a certain primitive flair.

As the Tea Party is drawing up plans for a formal committee
that will raise funds and direct support to conservative candidates (and Sarah Palin is picking up her cheerleader’s megaphone) the grass roots of the party is digging into their tea bag of graphic tricks.
By the way, my favorite tea is Revolution (ironic, no?).
