When She Stops Writing On Her Hand, You'll Know They've Wheeled Out The Robot Sarah Palin
Sarah Palin tells the people what they want to hear and gets the expected reaction. She all but admits she made sure the notes she wrote on her hand would become a media freakout, and important talking point for interviews.
But in the video below she also discusses the Tea Party, without any of the mockery the movement as a subject usually draws on late night talk shows. Palin admits the Tea Party is a threat to the Republicans. No doubt the Republicans are hearing her message loud and clear.
The Tea Party, as it popularly known now, only started a year ago, and if not already, then soon enough millions of Americans will proudly claim to be Tea Partiers.
A third major political party in the United States, as the country heads into the chaos of years of mass unemployment and the loss of the 'easy credit' tens of millions of Americans had been using for years to pay for groceries, fuel, heat, could become a reality.
If so, presumably the Democrats and Republicans will quietly team up to smash the Tea Party movement.
The Tea Party's best bet would be to mostly agree on a set of principles and policies, debated publicly, and run as independents everywhere. It will be harder for Republicans and Democrats to absorb or destroy them that way, they will need to picked off one by one, instead of a full frontal assault.
Elections later this year are going to be very interesting.
By the time 2012 rolls around.....
