Why Mommy is a Tea Partier

The WSJ has a column today on the face of the Tea Party. As the great Ted "Thedore" Logan once said, "It's your mom, dude!"

Our own local San Diego Tea Party is filled with moms and wouldn't be possible without the tireless efforts of three women (all moms of school-age kids, I think): Leslie Eastman, Sarah Bond, and Dawn Wildman.

It makes sense that moms would be so prevalent in the Tea Party. After all, it's their children who will have to pay for Washington's reckless spending.

I think it's absolutely absurd you have ignored the May 6th market crash. What are you smokin?

I don't have any more information than anyone else on it.

It scares me, and I think it's a sign of very thin and skittish markets. I worry that it's a foreshock of things to come.

But what else would you expect from markets driven so rapidly upward by the Dirty Fed's liquidity flood while the financial system and the real economy is still deathly ill?

I recommend Zero Hedge for the best commentary on May 6th.

Happy Super Tuesday!
