    She’s just worried about the incoming torpedo of the investigation of her campaign financing!
    That, and she’s probably gotten a MUCH more lucrative offer from FAUX Noi$e to be another “Political Expert” commentator for them!
    (SNERK!!)

    Interesting. The original ta party was a group of criminals that vandalized the cargo of ships in the harbor. Disguised as the natives so as not to get the blame. Not unlike a C-PAC.

    One man’s criminals is another man’s patriots. We look back at the actions of the colonists responding to the greed of the crown with pride in our individualism and, our willingness to work together as a United people to express that frustration.
    The tea party, like the Rs and Ds, are painted with a broad brush that only sees the most extreme members. There are many good, civil, and friendly people who believe in most of the principles set forth by the tea party, and who, like many of us, no longer see the Rs and Ds as responsive to our nation’s needs.
    I doubt if anyone other than seamen from Britain were fooled by the make up and outfits. Our ancestors could name the tribe to which a native american belonged by their hair, clothes, and accoutrements.
    I like coffee.

    btw, I am a progressive moderate who is more liberal than conservative. this caveat is provided because there are some folks who think I am PRETENDING to be unbiased and totally centrist.
    What I am is civil, compassionate, and..
    Respectfully,

    If they would just change the name to the Crazy Wacko party they might get somewhere.

    I agree with Masterskrain, that she’s just another selfish opportunist cashing in on the lucrative media market catering to whipping the right-wing fringe into a constant state of hateful froth. In her Congressional “career” she sponsored just one bill, and spent the rest of her time spewing whacko conspiracies. Assigning that wrecker to head the Intelligence Committee was just another clear indicator of the Republican Party’s intention to obstruct anything done by the Obama Administration, regardless of any harm to the country as a result. Their goal is to obstruct, not govern, and when Michele was finally revealed for the willful tool she is, she bailed before being thrown out at the ballot box in the reddest of red districts. Enough of her kind.

    In her quitting speech, Ms. Bachmann said that it was the cover-up that caused the death of the 4 Americans at Benghazi. Really? Not the terrorists? An event that allegedly happened after the killings caused the killings? How psychotic is this woman?

    The Tea Party is an agenda-furthering tool of the Koch brothers – only it’s members are unaware of that. http://uprisingradio.org/home/2013/05/30/firedoglake-tea-party-ties-to-koch-brothers-ignored-in-irs-scandal/

    Most of its platform consists of removal of the parts of gov’t that keep the public safe from corporate exploitation – it is phrased in such a way as to taste sweet to the common man.
    1) Repeal Obamacare; Pursue Patient-Centered Care
    2) Stop the Tax Hikes
    3) Reverse Obama’s Spending Increases
    4) Scrap the Code; Replace It with a Flat Tax
    5) Pass a Balanced Budget Amendment
    6) Reject Cap and Trade
    7) Rein in the EPA
    8) Unleash America’s Vast Energy Potential
    9) Eliminate the Department of Education
    10) Reduce the Bloated Federal Workforce
    11) Curtail Excessive Federal Regulation
    12) Audit the Fed

    All of these proposals aid businesses and hurt citizens.

    Bachmann didn’t wreck the ship – it was that way when she boarded; she just helped steer it onto the reef…
    …not that it needed much help!

    This toon is very correct when looking at the TEA-party of 2013. It is possible that there are decent people who really wanted to lower the tax burden on the middle-class, but today you can’t find them for all the tri-cornered hats, assault-rifles and aborted-fetus-pictures. Focus, people, focus…
