Well folks, I think we’re in the End Times. Not for Mankind, but for the Tea Party. Not only are they on a suicide mission in Congress, shutting down government and leaving millions of Americans in the lurch, but they are in the editorial pages still trying to explain who they are and what they stand for.
In the N&O, a guy from Americans for Prosperity writes a desperation piece that basically says, “Hey, we’re not really anti-government” and “We’re not even Republicans.” Then, get this, he blames liberals (Can you believe it?) for misrepresenting the Tea Party. Problem is, they don’t stand for anything. They stand against everything.
Four years after rallies that included placards with slogans like “Keep your hands off my Medicare,” the Tea Party says they are nothing more than a conservative grassroots movement with no central authority. This from a guy whose organization is heavily funded by the Koch Brothers and Art Pope. Hilarious.
