Tea Party Loses Grassroots Cred

If the fact that Ginny Thomas, wife of Justice Clarence Thomas, is a teabagger doesn’t dispel any possible claims the Tea Party had on being a grassroots movement I don’t know what will.

His wife, on the other hand, started the day in a blaze of publicity. Virginia Lamp Thomas, known to all as Ginni, appeared that morning on Sean Hannity’s Fox show. Wearing a TV-red jacket, Thomas bantered with Hannity about the “tyranny” President Barack Obama and his party are inflicting on the country. Then Thomas, who had recently launched a nonprofit called Liberty Central, sounded a dire warning. “We are in a fight for our country’s life,” she said. “We’ve all got to do whatever we can.” Channeling Tea Party rhetoric, she called on conservative voters to give money, sign petitions, and, in November, overthrow those who are turning “citizens” into “subjects.”

Growl! Tyranny, hell yea! off with their heads and all that…

I guess Michelle Obama is now free to start a Marxist-Leninist book club or something.
