Who'da Thunk it?

The "Independent" Tea Party [funded by Republican operatives and front groups] is essentially being absorbed into the GOP.

In front of a crowd of Republican Party activists and the tea-party movement’s rank and file here on Tuesday night, former Alaska governor Sarah Palin seemed to put a damper on speculation that she might consider running for president in 2012 as a third-party candidate.

Asked what her advice would be to conservatives as the November elections approach, Palin first lavished praise on the Tea Party movement, calling it "a grand movement" and adding, "I love it because it’s all about the people."

But she quickly pivoted to the broader question of whether the Tea Party movement might successfully field its own candidates in national elections, and on that point she sounded far from convinced.

"Now the smart thing will be for independents who are such a part of this Tea Party movement to, I guess, kind of start picking a party," Palin said. "Which party reflects how that smaller, smarter government steps to be taken? Which party will best fit you? And then because the Tea Party movement is not a party, and we have a two-party system, they’re going to have to pick a party and run one or the other: ‘R’ or ‘D’."

I've said it before and I'll say it again: my Gadsden Flag stays in mothballs until this fad of faux-patriotism/faux-Independent it surely will.

    Amen friend!

    This is one of the most annoying things about this movement... I have to keep my Gadsen and Culpeppers off the pole, lest some confuse me for one of them!

    I even switched my profile image to the Serapis. Of course, no one asks about that one either -- except to point out there aren't any blue stripes in our flag!!


  2. These deluded fools still can't see they've been duped by Dick Armey and the republicans.

  3. Don't you just love the backpedaling by Beck on the subject of 'Revolution'......and the verbal civil wars underway at the CPAC Convention.
