Over at The Chicken Wing, Roberta is worried that there may not be enough teabagging going on in Washington DC, even if teabaggers win.
This week, former Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott, made it clear what the plan is for Clint Didier, Rand Paul, Sharon Angle and others when they arrive in the other Washington as freshman senators, should they be so silly as to attempt to join forces with “Tea Party-minded” legislators such as Jim DeMint in what was first described by Rand Paul as a potential “Tea Party Caucus.”
When Sharon Angle, Rand Paul and Clint Didier are all freshman Senators, the apocalypse will be at hand, so no need to worry yourself about how to force people to stay awfully, horribly conservative. I think Death riding a pale horse and Jesus returning will be a bigger deal any of them.
Lott told the Washington Post “We don’t need a lot of Jim DeMint disciples. As soon as they get here, we need to co-opt them.”
Or, better yet, make sure they don’t get there. That seems like a better plan, and one I’m happy to uphold. In any event, when you think Trent Lott is too liberal, you’ve gone off the deep end.
Well, forwarned is forearmed. At least Lott is being honest. Take a listen to Jack Hunter’s take on this scurrilous proposal by the establishment determined to hang onto power at the cost of your liberty:
You can watch the video over there if you like, but you’re not missing much by not watching it. It’s basically the same argument several times repeated except with a Southern accent.
