Steny Hoyer (D-Maryland) and apparent clinical psychologist assesses the motivations of the tea party.
There are a whole lot of people in the Tea Party that I see in these polls who don’t want any compromise. My presumption is they have unhappy families. All of you have been in families: single-parent, two-parents, whatever. Multiple parent and a stepfather. The fact is life is about trying to reach accommodation with one another so we can move forward. That is certainly what democracy is about. So if we are going to move forward compromise is necessary.
Hey, partiers, look on the bright side. Not too long ago it was racism that explained desires for fiscal responsibility, free markets and limited government. Now, at least, you have been diagnosed as possessing similar family dysfunctionality that is also blamed for women wanting to take their clothes off for a living.
