See any parallels between the Occupy Wall Street movement and the Tea Party? Well Michele Bachmann—the founder of the Tea Party Caucus—doesn’t. “The Tea Party picks up its trash after it has a demonstration, there’s a difference,” Bachmann said at an appearance in San Francisco yesterday.

“The Occupy Wall Street is asking for more spending and more government,” she went on. “The Tea Party movement, in high contrast, is calling for less government and less spending, so that individuals can solve their own problems. There’s a 180-degree difference between the Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street.” (Read more Occupy Wall Street stories.)
