The Tea Party movement and conspiracy theories

An interesting article about how the Tea Party movement is reviving lots of old right-wing conspiracy theories.
Apparently the words "won't get fooled again" don't apply to tea partiers.

Wow. A belief in the Constitution as far out. Have you ever READ Article I, sec. 8 of the Constitution?

Have you read the article James? You can believe in the Constitution but still be sucked into right-wing conspiracy theories.

Consider the case of the Tea Party candidate for the Republican U.S. Senate nomination in Texas (I can't recall her name). She was surging in the polls until it came out that she believed that 9/11 was carried out with the cooperation of the U.S. government.
