That Crazy Moment When A Progressive And A Tea Partier Are In Complete Agreement

From Upworthy… (A 2-minute video everyone in our field should watch and then share widely!)

Mark Meckler (co-founder, Tea Party Patriots) and Joan Blades (co-founder, MoveOn.org) come from opposite ends of the political spectrum and should be mortal enemies if the current level of political discourse in Washington D.C. is anything to go by. Instead, they found a way to calmly share their beliefs and discovered that while “right” and “left” obviously don’t agree on everything, they share a lot more common ground than anyone thought.
