I agree with all of that except the part about Goldwater, Brian. Ugly and hateful old bastard that he was, Goldwater was probably the last true conservative who was prominent on a national level. He was pro-choice, supported gay rights (such as they were at the time) and hated 'true believers' (on either side) with a passion. This is, after all, the same guy who said every American should line up and kick Jerry Falwell right in the ass. It's just my personal opinion, but I think he'd feel the same way about the Tea Party.

My hope for OWS (not specific to Philadelphia) is that it will coalesce around a single course of action. To me, the Get Money Out of Politics crowd, with their proposed constitutional amendment, seems the most appealing and potentially effective. My fear is that they will either be assimilated by a mainstream party with interest in nothing but maintaining the status quo (the fate that befell the Tea Party, in my opinion) or that they will be marginalized before they can get organized.
