Two groups at the Georgia capitol

I heard that Overpasses for Obama's Impeachment would hold a rally today at the Georgia capitol, so I decided to check it out. Before I left, I checked the capitol calendar, and saw the "Atlanta Tea Party" had a scheduled event at 10:45am, and I assumed it was the same group.

Wrong assumption.

Today's Tea Party?

When I got the capitol, I saw a handful of folks, mostly in business attire, doing interviews.  The Atlanta Tea Party group was apparently working in conjuction with something called the Green Tea Coalition, and was talking about something called a Consumer Energy Bill of Rights. A few folks had professionally printed signs declaring something about "renewable energy." I didn't stop to chat or listen, but the affair looked to me very much like politics as usual.

I passed this Tea Party by when I saw the Overpass contingent staged across the street.

The Overpass people looked and talked far more like the Tea Party I mingled with back in 2010.

When did the Tea Party go corporate in appearance - and wonkish on energy?
