"populist effort to save the country" and unusual topic & style of prose? I don't think this is an encyclopedia topic.. (Chunbum Park 01:14, 15 December 2009 (UTC))

How is this an unusual topic? It is a real, if informal, group that is participating in U.S. politics. See also Tea Party Movement and Restructuring of the U.S. political right. As far as prose, there indeed are some odd things -- quoted or paraphrased from Beck. If nothing else, he has unusual style; I haven't yet been able to frame a biographical article. Howard C.

But isn't that just Glenn Beck finding something to do/talk about by evoking patriotism? I don't get how it is a "project" that can "save" a country. I'm not very knowledgeable about movements like these, but I think Tea Party people organized & operated by staging protests, so Wikipedia describes them as "Tea Party protests." I don't think this is comparable to the restructuring of the Republican party following the 2008 Presidential Election. (Chunbum Park 05:04, 15 December 2009 (UTC))
