The tea party wasn't started by the Koch Brothers, they simply latched onto it. At any rate George Soros is just as bad if not worse. Again BOTH parties do this shit, yet only the republicans get repeatedly blasted for it. It's hypocrisy at it's finest.

If by "latched onto it" you mean "planned it for years in advance". Here's a website from a group they were funding over ten years ago: this is from 2002

They turned it from a fairly small, disorganized group of pissed off people into a large, well-organized, well-publicized, pseudo-third-party by throwing millions of dollars at it. So, no, it's really not just some grass-roots group. The Kochs bankrolled it, and Murdoch made Fox into their media arm.
