The Tea Party and Social Conservatism

Two months ago, I wrote here of my crystal-izing grand unifying theory of Tea Partyism's rise, which was the fact that they steered clear of social issues--thereby making them more attractive to moderates (who ultimately win a Party elections).

It seems that I may be onto something, as 16 Tea Party groups have signed a letter to the Republican Party urging them to put social issues on the back burner and concentrate on the things Tea Partiers are interested in--namely, lower taxes, less spending, less government, abiding by the Constitution.

Right CW, where you been? The movement is about fiscal responsibility, not abortion and gay rights.
