The lunatic-fringe Tea Party “congressmen” are demonstrating right now how far gone they are. They are doing exactly what the president said they would do again. In their childish manner, they are trying to frustrate the president by refusing to budge one inch on their insane path to sure destruction.
In a way, these political babies are, by definition, a bunch of people dressed up and they act like the real Boston Tea Party. But, instead of dumping tea in Boston Harbor, they dump on our country.
That’s where the comparison ends to the real Tea Party. They think that by calling themselves the Tea Party that makes them patriotic. They’re wrong again. They are a fake Tea Party.
These clowns are really no better then the Occupy Wall Street protesters. They need to call themselves the “Occupy Congress.” That way we’d know exactly what they are all about.
