A Republican-oriented political action committee (PAC) called Our Country Deserves Better has tried to hijack the non-partisan, grassroots Tea Party movement for its own purposes.
Not content to just participate and ride the wave with the rest of us, Mark Williams and company are sowing discord and damaging the movement. Southern California Tax Revolt Colation and Leslie Eastman have the details.
Bottom line: Tea Party Patriots good, Tea Party Express bad. I know the Tea Party Patriots personally, having teabagged with them many times, and I can vouch for their grassroots authenticity, non-partisanship, and all-around good-people-ness.
