Yesterday in Searchlight, Nevada, anywhere from 6,000 to 10,000 people, mostly self-identified Tea Party folks gave the senate Majority Leader, Dingy Harry Reid notice. That his time as a senator is almost up.
As an aside, keep in mind that the link is one to the Associated Press, a seemingly front group for the Obamawhore media in general. Of course they had to find some of the most extreme views to put in the article. Finding someone in the crowd that wanted proof the Dear Leader, President Obama, is an American citizen.
But back on point.
Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin was the headliner of this protest and she led the charge that the Dear Leader, President Obama, Speaker of the House, Jackass Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Dingy Harry are bankrupting the United States. And her message to Jackass Nancy and Dingy Harry?
Of course, that will come in November. Then, God willing, the American voter will vote out Dingy Harry completely and that the Democrats will lose their House majority and Jackass Nancy is reduced to House Minority Leader.
So, what does this all have to do with Mrs. Palin and the Republican party?
Well, it appears that many people are upset that Mrs. Palin endorsed Sen. John "F--- You" McCain in his reelection bid over former Republican congressman J. D. Hayworth. Many think, and are correct, that Mr. Hayworth is more in line with Mrs. Palin's views than Sen. "F--- You" McCain.
But there is something called loyalty. And Mrs. Palin is loyal to Sen. "F--- You" McCain the man. After all, it was Sen. "F--- You" McCain that asked her to be the Republican Vice-Presidential nominee. He gave her the platform, so to speak. She is where she is because of the one correct decision that Team McCain did in the whole Death March of a campaign in 2008.
So for me, I will give her a pass on this one.
I will also offer this about Mr. Hayworth.
I think that he will make a great senator if he does best Sen. "F--- You" McCain. But my problem in so much that there is one is that Mr. Hayworth has been there and done that. He was in the class of '94 that brought the Republicans to control congress for the first time in 40 years.
I do not see him as any more different or revolutionary than Newt Gingrich is today. They are both great thinkers and leaders. But I think that their time has past.
The Republican party is the natural home for those that identify themselves as Tea Party people. And the party need not be afraid of the overwhelming majority of those who call themselves Tea Partiers.
I have been to three different Tea Party events. Outside of the Democrat Lyndon LaRouche crazies, they have been very mixed groups. Racially, religiously and what their emphasis is on. All agree that the federal, and by extension state and local governments are encroaching on everyday freedoms in this Great Land. That is the glue that holds the movement together.
To be clear, there are few if any Democrats that even realize what the Tea Party movement is all about. They want to continue to peddle that these are just racists that have a hate for the Dear Leader, President Obama, because he is the first black president.
We do not like his policies.
I actually think that if I had the chance to meet the Dear Leader, President Obama, and politics were off the table, we would have fun talking sports and being a father to young daughters in such a high stress job. See, none of us that I know in Tea Party land hate the man. We hate the policies.
Now, Mrs. Palin is making a genuine attempt to reach out to the Tea Party folk as quite possibly the most popular Republican among the rank-and-file voters. That is why she spoke yesterday. Right after she gave a glowing speech for Sen. "F--- You" McCain at a political rally in Mesa, Arizona. She is a Republican that has relations with both the establishment wing of the GOP and these potential new voters. And future politicians.
Despite this outreach, we can count on those in the conservative and or Republican establishment that want nothing to do with the Tea Party movement. They are in their little Washington cocoons and believe all the crap spewed out by their enablers in the Obamawhore media.
Fine for them. They seem to enjoy sticking it in the eye of the average Republican. These people seem to be all doom and gloom. They think that we should just accept what the Dear Leader, President Obama, and his minions are doing to this nation. Just that we can manage it better.
Here is the wrap around.
Republicans need to embrace and welcome the Tea Party people into our fold. Tea Party people need to realize the Republican party is their home. No Libertarian attempts to co-opt their message. Sarah Palin gets it. Maybe her endorsement of Sen. "F--- You" McCain gives her an ear to bend, so to speak. If the Republicans do not bring in these people, we will be going for minority party status for a long time to come.
