I missed one thing in the posts below: the meanness and vindictiveness of many contemporary conservatives. They clearly enjoy attacking vulnerable people. I don't think this is anger. This is something else, more difficult to understand.

The dictionary definition of meanness is:
1. The state of being inferior in quality, character, or value; commonness.
2. The quality or state of being selfish or stingy.
3. A spiteful or malicious act.
The dictionary defintion of vindictive is:
1. Disposed to seek revenge; revengeful.
2. Marked by or resulting from a desire to hurt; spiteful.
Maybe if I think about these more I will understand the Tea Party.
