Never underestimate their ability to frame the narrative. While the average self-identified conservative American can see right through this Alinsky style propaganda, there are far to many unaware Americans that are blindly influenced by this rhetoric. The simple truth is that it does work. Like it or not, believe it or not, it works. It worked on framing public perception of Sarah Palin - the mere mention of her name is almost toxic around those who do not know the truth, it worked on Glenn Beck - look what constant smearing did to the advertising base of his show on FOX, and it has had an affect in nearly every conversation had where public opinion is present.
That doesn't mean they will be successful in stopping the Tea Party. Just as they have not been successful in stopping Sarah Palin or Glenn Beck. But there are perhaps millions of Americans that will continue to be difficult to reach with the truth, so long as they continue to remain passively involved and take their cues form the liberal mainstream media talking points.
