When Tea Party members screamed that they wanted to “Take their country back” I wondered, from who? Now I know. Women. There will be a decline in the number of women in congress for the first time since 1978.
The Tea Party is made up of mostly white men who wish to turn back the clock. They want to "take their country back". As in BACK-ward.
So much attention was paid to the racial undertones spouted by Tea Party members, that perhaps we overlooked the sexist agenda.
