The coffee party...

http://www.coffeepartyusa.com/

Coffee Party USA aims to reinvigorate the public sphere, drawing from diverse backgrounds and diverse perspectives, with the goal of expanding the influence of the People in America's political arena. <b>We do not require nor adhere to any preexisting ideology.</b> We encourage deliberation guided by reason amongst the many viewpoints held by our members. We see our diversity as a strength, not a weakness, because we believe that faithful deliberation from multiple vantage points is the best way to achieve the common good. It is in the responsible and reasonable practice of deliberation that we hope to contribute to society.
I'm listening to one of their meetings now on CSPAN and frankly it seems like they are just reading though a list of Dem talking points (health care Rep filibusters campaign finance reform corporate money etc etc etc).

When is it all going to end....

Re: The coffee party...

Is there a dirty sexual act named after coffee filters?

What I find amusing is that this I'm sure will be supported by the very people who derided the Tea-Party rallies as 'astroturf' campaigns.

These 'responses' have establishment party fingerprints all over it.

Re: The coffee party...

I seriously doubt this is expected to be taken as real. More a parody or spoof.

Yep, it seems to have sprung up pretty much overnight (well within the last month or so) and already has a nice centralized webpage w/ donate links, a shop and organized meetings. Does the "Tea Party" even have a centralized website yet?

I'm listening to the meeting from this past weekend on CSPAN and they seem to be taking themselves seriously. It definitely started as a response to the Tea Party but I don't think it is a spoof.
