Okay, we can all agree on certain things.

One of them, for instance, is that the Tea Party movement in America seems to contain a rather disproportionate number of absolute nutters -- 'birthers', Christian Reconstructionists and there has also been a smattering of thinly veiled racism thrown into the mix as well.

But here's where you and me will probably disagree -- the fact that some of them are, to put it politely, completely hatstand does not mean that the movement doesn't have some pretty damn good ideas.
