Greg Sargent gets it right

Greg Sargent at The Plum Line understands what few other pundits seem aware of:

The Tea Party Movement is--despite all the free media it receives from Fox News--relatively small compared to the Progressive Movement, yet few political reporters even acknowledge the existence of the Progressives.
