For those of you who hate the Tea Party, I have a one word reply to you: Ha!

Because they were right, and you were very, very wrong

They were right about the IRS, right about Boston, right about Benghazi.  

They were right about Eric Holder and the threat that our top law enforcement officer posed to the Bill of Rights; they were right about Obama and his smarmy, made-up, intellectual know-it-all-ism; they were right about the press being active advocates for partisan purposes while ignoring Obama’s smarmy, made-up, intellectual know-it-all-ism; they were right about the GOP being wrong on taxes and spending; they were right on Obamacare and Mitt Romney and the constitutional limits of government, as well as the limits placed on government by natural law. 

And they were right about Sarah Palin, ringing her bells and warning the liberals that we were gonna be free and we were gonna be armed.

And they were right about Glenn Beck, who’s been right about almost everything it seems.    

And they are right about this too: If the GOP ever wants to win again, they should bet on the Tea Party, rather than excoriate them.

They were right and liberals were wrong.

Get over it.

About the only good thing to happen since Obama was elected president was the spontaneous, righteous and healthy formation of citizens’ groups that make up the Tea Party, the best organization without any organization to come around since the Great Awakening.

Without the Tea Party, 2010 would have been just another mid-term muff by the GOP.     

So count me as thrilled that God has proved that He has such a great sense of humor that he pees on liberals and then tells them that it’s just a Tea Party.

This is especially true when it comes at the expense of folks like metro-sophisticates Senator John McCain, former Senator Dick Lugar, who was done in by the Tea Party, and

Slate, with comedic timing that could have only been provided by the “One,” penned an article in March titled The Tea Party Caucus is Dead and That's OK.
