The Monday letter from the tea partier in Snohomish creates a huge question that begs a giant answer. He stated that Tea Party members are “from all political points of view” and then trashes the left and liberals in every paragraph.
If there is no room for liberal points of view, do we not have a big problem within the Tea Party movement with intellectual dishonesty? Gee, intellectual dishonesty … That sounds just like another political party. Let me give you a hint if you haven’t figured out which one I’m talking about. Have you heard of a party that claims to be “fiscally conservative” or “the party of personal responsibility” or how about “the party of family values” or (here’s a real dandy) “The party that prevented all terrorist attacks on its watch.”
