The Virginia tea party convention last weekend was the largest tea party gathering to date. It’s a sign that the constitutional small-government movement is getting more traction, and that the big action — even on federal issues and races — is likely to be at the state level.

Conservative boat-rockers like Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, Herman Cain, and Liberty Central President Ginni Thomas were stars at the convention.

Tea partyers obviously are drawn to principled critics of big government that was created by both parties. Establishment Republicans who aren’t willing to recognize their role in igniting this middle-class revolt need to move out of the way, or they will be pushed out — see Murkowski, Specter, Bennett, Crist, etc.

Former Sen. George Allen, who was ousted in 2006 and is preparing a challenge rematch against Sen. Jim Webb, D-Va., in 2012 spoke at the convention and then took questions.
