Got Tea?


By what do we mean the Revolution? The war? That was no part of the Revolution; it was only an effect and consequence of it.  The Revolution was in the minds of the people, and this was effected, from 1760 to 1775, in the course of fifteen years before a drop of blood was shed at Lexington.  The records of thirteen legislatures, the pamphleteers, newspapers in all the colonies, ought to be consulted during that period to ascertain the steps by which the public opinion was enlightened and informed concerning the authority of Parliament over the colonies. – JOHN ADAMS, letter to Thomas Jefferson, August 24, 1815

    Rasmussen reports that Obama is up +7 in CT. I can safely vote for Gary Johnson, so I will.

    G-d willing the One is Done.

      +7? Maybe.

      Republican report suppression varies between 4 and 14, depending on the polster and the district, based on what we saw two years ago. Raz may be one of the more reliable – BUT – if they’re using the 2008/2004 turn-out model, they will be way out. Note that even they missed the 2010 Tea surge.

      Me? I suspect that Nutmeggers are up for grabs; that if the Won wins CT, it’ll be a squeaker.

    “In shame, I now report that I chickened out and inked the oval for Mittens.”

    So you voted for someone who was actually running for president instead of some self-stroking flake running a vanity campaign? No shame in that. Not for the sane, anyway.

    “Got Tea?

    We sure as hell do now. The so called Tea Party turned out to be no different than that gaggle of Perot flakes who elected Bill Clinton twice.

    Thanks a lot assholes.

      Well, I don’t have an answer for what happened.

      I had originally complained that the GOP was doomed if a moderate like Romney topped the ticket. Yet Mitt moved to the Conservative Right – and I thought then he’d attract significant Tea support. Both candidates drew fewer votes than the Palin/McCain ticket. That the Won’s numbers were down was no great shock. That even that weak showing edged-out Romney – even in Ohio – THAT was a shock. There are a lot of Andres out there.

    They were created by our own side. It’s like half of the right has some sort of death wish. Kamikazes.
