The Tea Party members have discovered the Founding Fathers re-enactment plays at Williamsburg this summer.
They stand in the crowd listening closely as the costumed actors relive dramatic moments in the founding of our country. They clap loudly when an actor portraying Patrick Henry delivers his “Give me liberty or give me death” speech. They cheer and hoot when Gen. George Washington surveys the troops behind the original 18th-century courthouse. And they shout out about the tyranny of our current government during scenes depicting the nation’s struggle for freedom from Britain…..
The executives who oversee Williamsburg said they have noticed the influx of tea partiers, and have also noted a rise in the number of guests who ply the costumed actors for advice about how to rebel against 21st-century politicians. (The actors do their best to provide 18th-century answers.)
You’d think the Tea Party Movement people would be able to recognize the difference between an outdoor play enactment and the real thing which happened about 225 years ago.

Another good read is an Mother Jones article by David Corn about GOP Rep. Bob Inglis, from SC.
…slams Republican demagoguery, bemoans anti-Semitic tea party conspiracy nonsense, decries Sarah Palin’s ignorance, and looks for a job.
I think its funny how these Tea Party people think, which they don’t.
