Letter from James Carville on the Tea Party Movement

Let Uncle James translate what Tea Party Republicans really mean when they say they want to "take our government back."

Kentucky's Rand Paul opposes the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Nevada's Sharron Angle is itching to dismantle Social Security. And California's Carly Fiorina dismisses climate change concerns as fretting about "the weather."

Look, we've all snickered at some of the kooky ideas these Tea Partiers espouse. But there's nothing funny about the challenge we face. And it certainly doesn't help that corporations now can spend an unlimited amount in support of candidates they like.

We have the power to keep these extremists out of Washington. We only have to seize this moment.
