On Erick Erickson's Tea Party Advice

Writing on Redstate today, blogger Erick Erickson is recommending that believers in limited government turn away from participation in Tea Parties in favor of other policy-oriented activities.

While I would never say that attending Tea Parties is the only activity a concerned citizen should participate in, Erickson's advice seems misplaced to me. In my view, along with Reagan's election and the rise of conservative talk radio, the Tea Parties gave been the biggest shot in the arm the limited government movement has had in 30 years. Did we tell Reagan to stop at one term? Do we tell Rush to hush-up now? Of course not. So why stop attending the very effective Tea Parties?
