The Tea Party Is Not The Enemy

Lawrence Lessig addresses how criticizing the Tea Party serves as a distraction from breaking the hold that lobbyists have on government and enacting citizen funded elections.

As we look at the Tea Party…as much as we get angry at the particular things they say or the particular things they want, we need to recognize the Tea Party is not the enemy. Despite their extremism it is their passion and a strategy here that can be used to fight a common enemy that we have with them.
