Reading the Tea Party Leaves has an interesting piece up on the Tea Party movement.

The Sam Adams Alliance, a Chicago-based non-profit group advancing free-market principles, conducted interviews with dozens of leaders in the grassroots movement to see what inspired their participation.

The results surprised even Anne Sorock, who was with the group when it began sponsoring protests last year.

Bill McMorris, a writer with the Franklin Center, spoke to Anne Sorock and did an in depth analysis of their findings.
