In response to blogger "Wise", and others.

The Grown Up party, while somewhat tongue in cheek, is more of a forum than a political party, per se. It professes to cross ideological lines and require a base level of maturity and civility when doing the business of the country. You could be a tea party follower or a liberal democrat and be a "member" of the Grown Up party, as long as you insist upon accountability on the part of elected officials that behave like children.
