    GOP chair rebukes tea party 'militia' - Andy Barr - POLITICO.com


    “A lot of these people don’t care about being the majority, they just want a megaphone. They want a voice,” the state GOP chairman said. “Once they get a reporter to cover a story they have a megaphone, and they get pretty loud.”

    Jones insisted that Oklahoma Republicans will not follow this “small faction within the party.”

    What are you saying is the "nightmare"... the forming of the milita itself and potential bad press or the GOP Chairman vs the GOP legislators & tea party?

    If anyone wants to be really famous all they need to do is be at the Boston rally tomorrow and video tape themselves shouting racial epithets. Then post it on You Tube. They'll get national wall to wall MSM coverage, the blogosphere will be lit up with it, forums will gleefully link to it, Rachel Madcow will do a week on it and they'll be on the front page, above the fold, of Thursday's Boston Globe. Voila instant fame.

    He is saying it is a "nightmare" because he really really wants it to be true, and he is hoping that if he says it enough times, then somehow magically it will come to pass. It just self-delusion, pay no mind.

    I can't wait to see what happens. There's supposedly gonna be infiltrators acting like racist azzholes. It will be interesting how this sorts out. Politics in America is getting wierd again and I like it!

    The passion on the right is long overdue (Where were they in November 2008?) and you can bet it will be met with something similar from the left as it should be. Moderation is safe and cozy, but it's boring as hell. Where are the Green radicals? Goddam puzzies!

    You getting any Tea action in Worcester?

    I don't think we're getting any Tea action here in Providence.
    We're having a fugazzi tea party Wednesday ... it's not the real tea people though.
    It's more of a tax day thing.

    Nobody gives 2 sh!ts about Rhode Island.
    We could have the first bare your breast and buns tea party ... people would just run away.

    Never heard about it until now. Not even my friend and family Teabaggahs mentioned it. I guess they're not that into it.

    Worcester Tea Party

    Strange that it is a ".com" and not a ".org"

    I would guess .com people perhaps are a bit more oiled in the wallet.

    Expet the sines to be speled propally ... :p

    So someone's making money off of it? Otherwise it would be a non-profit with a ".org", right?

    Without furthur info ... that's what I think when I see .com vs .org.

    Anyone can get either but .org seems less commercial on the surface.

    A lot of people think that when they see them.

    The only politicians that will be there are Tim Cahill and Christy Mihos.

    If Palin wasn't there Brown would have gone, but even he knows to stay away from her politically.

    It used to be .com could only be for business and .org only for non-profit... but it doesn't really matter any more with the "de-regulated" registrations.
