Tea Party Knuckle Draggers


The Republican Party has a death wish.

Weeper of the House John Boehner found it necessary to use Fox News Tuesday to take another gratuitous ad hominem swipe at Tea Party members who deigned to oppose using their money to bail out banks engaged in criminal behavior simply because those banks happened to have board members sitting at the seats of power. He said if you oppose government bailouts, you’re a knuckle dragger.

So just when the GOP is beginning to enjoy a rise in enthusiasm for its ticket after Congressman Paul Ryan’s selection as Mitt Romney’s running mate — though why Tea Partiers like Ryan (who voted for TARP, the Medicare Prescription Drug plan and Alaska’s “Bridge to Nowhere”) is beyond me — Boehner reminds Tea Partiers why they despise the party’s elites.

If you think the Tea Party is irrelevant, look back to November 2010. If you think the Tea Party is irrelevant, ask Senatorial candidate David Dewhurst (R-Texas), Representative Cliff Stearns (R-Fla.) and those in Georgia who were advocating for a 1-cent sales tax increase.
