I guess it was implied

Gee, while the slogan "Meet Me in the Middle," which implies that the "Coffee Party" is some kind of centrist, moderate reaction to the crazy-eyed rightwing Tea Party is mentioned in this NYT article about the former, there's no mention of the fact that she's been in the tank for Obama since at least 2008 or that the founder has previously been a speaker at Netroots Nation (aka YearlyKos) in the past.

Oh, and this is a hoot:

But Ms. Park said that while the Coffee Party — and certainly the name — was formed in reaction to the Tea Party, the two agree on some things, like a desire for fiscal responsibility and a frustration with Congress.

“We’re not the opposite of the Tea Party,” Ms. Park, 41, said. “We’re a different model of civic participation, but in the end we may want some of the same things.”

You're a fucking liar, Ms. Park, and you fucking know it. You want the government to take over Americans' health care insurance, and the only thing preventing you from admitting it is the fact that the rest of us realize that it's a fucking boondoggle and a disaster.

And the NYT (and Jon Zak of the WaPo, as well) are fucking abettors of your lies, trying to make it seem that you're some kind of centrist who just wants the left and right to come together.

You lie.

(h/t)

Update: By the way, Annabel Park is never mentioned even once in the same sentence as Barack Obama in the NYT article, even though she was an Obama supporter at least as early as 2008.  And, while the WaPo didn't bother to mention that, they at least mentioned that she worked for Virginia Dem Sen. Jim Webb.  The NYT glossed over that, too.
