CNBC's Santelli: Tea party movement is "pretty cool after a year and a half"

Ann Coulter's choice for president is back.
CNBC's Rick Santelli commented on his eighteen-month-old Chicago trading floor rant yesterday on the network's Squawk Box saying, "the Tea Party movement is moving along. It's pretty cool after a year and a half."
Remember, this comes from a guy who thought traders represented "the silent majority."
I happen to agree with CNBC's Steve Liesman though who told Santelli in March that he was "wrong on about everything."
Take a look at this flashback:
- CNBC's Kudlow: "I like this tea party story. And remember, our own Rick Santelli last winter was the progenitor."
- In rant on mortgage rescue plan, CNBC's Santelli "guess[ed]" that Chicago trading floor workers are "a pretty good statistical cross-section of America, the silent majority"
- CNBC reporter thinks traders represent "the silent majority"
