John Fund: Who Rules the Tea Party Empire? – WSJ.com


The Tea Party convention held this past weekend in Nashville wasn’t the biggest such gathering (600 people) or the most representative (the ticket price was more than $500) but it did give the national media a pretty good angle on the views and direction of this disparate movement.
