Amazing Timing for Book on Tea Parties

Original Article

Tonight’s victories by Tea Party candidates in Delaware, New York and New Hampshire will be all over the news in the morning, and happily commenting on them will be Scott Rassmussen (of the Rassmussen Poll) and Doug Schoen. They are authors of Mad as Hell: How the Tea Party Movement is Fundamentally Remaking Our Two-Party System.

Their book’s pub date is today. How is that for timing?

“So-called professionals in politics, business, and media have completely failed to comprehend the grassroots challenge to the status quo and have dismissed it as marginal and extreme,” says the promo literature. “The authors explore the broad-based nature of the Tea Party movement and explain how it is reshaping American politics—whether politicians and elite journalists like it or not.”
