Good morning everyone – and my humble thanks to Ms. A for taking back what was rightfully hers before I got my hot little hands on it. And imagine my surprise to find my iso suit full of Styrofoam peanuts. What a bunch of kidders you are!
Let’s get down to it, shall we?

New York, New York – April 29th, 2009 – The National Leadership Team
of the Nationwide Tea Party Coalition
(http://www.nationwideteapartycoalition.com) today accepted President
Obama`s invitation “to have a serious conversation about how we are
going to cut our health care costs down over the long term, how we are
going to stabilize Social Security.”
The invitation was
extended by the President at a Town Hall Meeting held in Arnold,
Missouri today (http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0409/21870.html).
Michael Patrick Leahy, a member of the National Leadership Team of the
Nationwide Tea Party Coalition, said” We want to broaden the scope to
address the President`s runaway march to socialist-statism, and the
rampant across the board irresponsible spending he is promoting with
his $787 Billion Stimulus Plan and his $1 Trillion Annual Deficit, his
takeover of General Motors, Chrysler and the Banks .”
Why, Mr. Leahy!We were just talking about you!
Giuda, organizer of the New York City Tea party attended by 12,000 and
of Parcbench (http://www.parcbench.com) said, “I think a constructive
dialogue with the President would be a great opportunity for him to
acknowledge that, yes, many Americans have a problem with the way
Washington is handling our taxpayer dollars and also that we are
concerned about health care and social security reform. I am happy he
is open to a discussion. The Tea Parties are protesting against fiscal
irresponsibility and any dialogue we can have will hopefully bring a
better public understanding of our country`s finances. Health care and
social security reform is a large concern to us.”
Leadership Team of the Nationwide Tea Party Coalition includes 25 of
the more than 900 local organizers of the April 15, 2009 Tax Day Tea
Parties held across the country, which were attended by more than 1
million Americans. Members of the National Leadership Team includes
Judson Phillips, organizer of the Nashville Tea Party attended by
10,000, James Dickey, organizer of the Dallas Tea Party, attended by
5,000, and JoAnn Abbot, organizer of the Washington, DC Tea Party
attended by more than 3,000. The full list of the 25 members of the
National Leadership Team of the Nationwide Tea Party Coalition can be

What’s the old oxymoron – “organized chaos”?
organizers. I’d have made the press release punchier with a rebuke of
Obama’s mocking themillion-plus Americans who participated in the
April 15 tea parties, but then again I’m a Freeper 🙂
Don’t you mean “a kajillion-zillion”? That number gets a lot bigger with each successive telling. Before long they’ll be posting pics of thereal rallies (against the Iraq war, pro-reproductive freedom, etc), and claiming that they’re actually pics of their flo-thru functions.
I’m pretty suspicious and I don’t remember any election among tea party groups to elect leadership of a national coalition.

A pox on them and their houses! That is not what the parties are about.
” WHAT THE BLANK MAKES THEM “LEGIT”?!
Like a VP with a scattergun, the Freepers have managed to actually hit their target, albeit an unintended one. Their knee-jerk reaction to any kind of centralized authorityat all has actually raised their suspicions, although a brief Lexus-Nexus search of the organizers’ names would have brought up the interesting background info that has been splashed all over left blogistan for weeks now.
Middle Finger to YOU!
just don’t like a group calling themselves the national committee on
their own say-so. It is especially troublesome because I think one of
the main issues that the tea party participants stand for (but who can
say) is that they take strong exception to centralization of authority.
I for one would like to return the right to choose senators to the
state governments to strengthen federalism and remove power from
I think that you may already have that right – it’s called “franchise.”
Unless you’re a convicted felon, of course.
And finally, one of them gets it right:
