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.
