The tea party protests and parades were much more modest this Tax Day, reflecting the grass-roots movement's metamorphosis from the mass fist-waving demonstrations of the past two years to something much more precise and targeted — a political "smart" bomb that, for now, shows no signs of becoming a third-party movement.
A Catholic priest who admitted having a sexual relationship with a high school girl more than 40 years ago was removed from his position, and a high-ranking official who oversaw the background checks of priests has resigned.
"There are fewer tea party protests with less intensity because, with the GOP controlling the House, the fear about the worst elements of the Democrats' agenda has subsided," said Alexandria-based campaign consultant Michael Meyers.
