Carender is not the stereotypical Tea Partier. She's classic Seattle — hipster glasses, a couple of tattoos, that certain Northwestern fashion sense. She even works for a nonprofit, teaching math and resume-writing to low-income adults. But when it comes to politics, she doesn't really fit Democratic-leaning Seattle — and she knows it.
"I was at a place watching the Scott Brown results, and some of us were cheering it on," Carender says. "And this guy comes over and says, 'Why? Why the bizarre reaction to this?'"
