The Howard Dean wing of the....oh wait
The Texas Tribune profiles the Coffee Party:
One of my favorite things about liberals is how they hate to admit that they are liberals. Heck, even the ones who don't claim to be moderates had to invent a new label for themselves.
Mares knows that if coffee is the opposite of tea, and the Tea Party has a conservative bent, the public will quickly assume that the Coffee Party is a home for disaffected Democrats. "That's a misconception right now," he said. "We aren't any wing of the Democratic Party -- not liberals, progressives, or moderates. We are strictly down that middle road."

By a show of hands, the group also unanimously supported including a public option in healthcare reform legislation.
