- The adjoining article says something I've never heard before and can't possibly be true. It credits a group called American Prosperity for spearheading the national tea party groups using talk radio and other means. I listen to a lot of talk radio, have heard many tea partiers call in. No caller has ever mentioned this group nor has any talk show host that I've heard. I've read a lot about the protests and haven't seen this group mentioned before. The media wants to believe it's orchestrated and not independent. As such I've read of other groups they've claimed were 'inciting' or 'in charge' of transporting and ginning up these people. The media do not understand freedom.
- Secondly, I've listened to Rush Limbaugh for 20 years and until last week would have said he was the leader of the conservative movement in America. (This is something entirely different than the Republican Party). However last week, I heard him say that the Tea Parties were strictly a phenomenon showing Republican anger at Democrat policies, "and don't let anyone tell you different."
- Rush is of course wrong, surprisingly so, because he has up til now praised the beauty of the tea parties for being utterly without a leader, just many independent individuals scrapping their way on their own. In the attached article, Michelle Malkin is quoted saying the movement is also about sell-out Republicans. To me, that's every one holding elected office.
