What the Tea Party Really Believes?

What the Tea Party Really Believes?
July 7, 2010
Share

The Pink Flamingo is terrified of extremes. I see the growing extremism and irrational behavior of the tea parties as just that. It did not start out this way, but it is getting there. The very real problem is the fact that the people involved in the tea parties are failing to weigh the biased information they are receiving from their tin-plated gods like Glenn Beck.

If something is not done to put some of these people in check, and explain the facts of life to them, via American history, we are in for a very terrifying ride, abjectly terrifying. How long will it be before some idiotic tea party twit who is seriously unstable does something like what happened in India over the weekend?

Mitt Romney’s Foul Donation to Nikki Haley – $42,000!

Mitt Romney’s Foul Donation to Nikki Haley – $42,000!
June 19, 2010
Share

There are a few ethics complaints about Nikki Haley’s income tax returns. She has staggering leadership problems, but that doesn’t matter. She is a woman, ergo she is better and more worthy than Gresham Barrett. Yea, it sounds dirty to me. Gresham and Natalie donated over $20,000 to charity last year. Haley donated $971 dollars. Even to SC Democrats that sounds cheap and just a little selfish.

Nikki Haley is LOSING the cash race. Gresham is being funded from within the state of South Carolina by normal Repubicans who cannot stomach another term of Mark Sanford nothing. So, Nikki’s little friends must come in from out of state and prop up what could be a floundering campaign.

You know that Tea Party Sh*t being spread around by FOX News and the far right about new faces and all this hope for something tea-like taking over the nation in some great big post hippie libertarian love-in?

Well…

In South Carolina, Nikki Haley is going around saying that she is going to help small business, yada yada yada. It’s always about small business. The BIG PROBLEM is the fact that South Carolina is all about BIG BUSINESS and industry. This is something Mark Sanford never seemed to be able to grasp, propelling the state into one of the highest unemployment rates in its history.

Congrats go to Gresham & Natalie Barrett for barely squeaking a run-off against Nikki Haley! Gresham seems to be on the rise, which gives me hope that he may be able to pull off a miracle in a couple weeks!

Let’s put it this way, Natalie will make an excellent First Lady for South Carolina!

Remember, Gresham was endorsed by Dick Cheney, Lindsey Graham, and Jim DeMint, real Republicans and not tea party twits. Funny how, once upon a time, an endorsement by Dick Cheney was important. Now though, he’s chopped liver, along with the memory of Reagan.

When a second man comes forward, either someone is really annoyed with Nikki Haley or there is something to the story?

Currently, Nikki Haley is the recipient of the last bastion of Southern manners and chivalry. Because she is a woman, the man are giving her a break. She is being treated like a frail, fragile, flower of womanhood, pure, never to be dirtied. It doesn’t matter if she is guilty or innocent. It is about the new political double standard.

Are women better than men?

Jim DeMint and Sarah Palin are promoting tea party candidates and cultivating themselves as “king makers”. We have a little problem with this. Have you noticed how many of the tea party candidates are extremely flawed?

We know Jim DeMint is using the entire process for his personal goals.

“…”The Kentucky primary seemed more about handing Mitch McConnell a loss . . . than handing Republicans a win,” says Melissa Clouthier, a conservative blogger for LibertyPundits.net. “It was clear before he was elected, that Rand Paul’s positions would be attacked by the Democrats, and I wonder if this obvious reality entered into any strategic thinking on Jim DeMint’s part.”

Does any state have as much fun with politics as South Carolina? First Mark Sanford went hiking the Appalachian Trail (down Argentine Way) and now allegedly his hand-picked protege, and Sarah Palin blessed Nikki Haley is in trouble.

You need a score-card with this one.

SC’s Bad Boy of Blogging, Will Folks drives The Pink Flamingo crazy because I think he is so seriously anti-Lindsey that he is irrational. Then again there are those in SC who make the argument that he is irrational anyway. He announced that he and Nikki Haley had had a
