So – you Tea Baggers want to take back America. What, may I ask, are your plans if you succeed?
I have to ask. And I have to ask over and over because your candidates for public office have a self-imposed gag rule in play. More and more, your candidates won’t talk to any legitimate reporters from the national press.
No, I do not consider Fox to be a legitimate news outlet. GOP fund-raising arm, yes. News organization, no.
But back to the fearless Tea Bagger candidates. Why do you, in some cases, actually run from the press? Sharon Angle literally ran from her own press conference. Christine O’Donnell says “no mas” to national interviews. Sarah Palin openly encourages her chicks to hide under the wings of Fox. (That metaphor sucks, but you get the idea.)
Before you whine about “biased, mainstream media” – ask yourself why the other candidates are not afraid to meet the press.
Your fear is real. You cannot justify some of the stupid things you’ve said. In America, we hold candidates accountable for their actions and their public utterances.
You Tea Party candidates are not accountable.
And your supporters are being duped by the likes of Dick Armey and Freedom Works.
The Gadsden flag means "don't tread on me." You folks think it means "don't talk to me."
