And it's not dead! We've got just as much adrenaline and fervor as we did in March 2010 as we marched around the Capitol singing hymns and chanting to the dastardly members of the House who were going to ram ObamaCare down our throats. We're just using our energies in a different way.
Even if the conservative movement hits Washington in November, we can't go back to sitting on the front porch on summer nights sipping tea (real tea like Lipton) and do nothing.
We have to make our representatives do something they don't: REPRESENT US!
We have to keep them on their toes.

Back when the Tea Party was new, I wrote in these pages that it was going to be big -- very big. When it was a year old, I wrote that the Tea Party movement was going to have an unglamorous, but effective future. After the 2010 congressional elections, when the Tea Party put an end to the Obama Democrats' congressional dominance, a lot of people seemed to think the Tea Party was pretty important.
But then, last year, the pundits forgot about the Tea Party movement and started rhapsodizing the Occupy Wall Street movement. The Tea Party was old news -- now it was the Occupiers who were going to change American politics.
That ended once journalists and pundits realized that the scruffy, anarchic -- and often criminal -- Occupy protesters were alienating voters and not accomplishing much. And I wrote here that Occupy Wall Street Gets The Ink, Tea Party Gets The Voters. And that's pretty much how it's turned out.
Occupy fizzled -- the final blow came when Andrew Breitbart fearlessly waded into a crowd of Occupiers who were trying to take over a conservative blog conference, and shouted "Stop raping people, you freaks!" Since they were freaks, and Occupiers had been raping people in embarrassing numbers, there wasn't much to say in response.
