Excerpted from “A Tea Party Manifesto; The movement is not seeking a junior partnership with the Republican Party. It is aiming for a hostile takeover.” By DICK ARMEY AND MATT KIBBE, Op-ed, The Wall Street Journal, AUGUST 17, 2010
[SIZE="+2"]T[/SIZE]he tea party movement has blossomed into a powerful social phenomenon because it is leaderless—not directed by any one mind, political party or parochial agenda.

… The tea party movement is not seeking a junior partnership with the Republican Party, but a hostile takeover of it. …

Methinks G.O.P. “junior partner” would be a high goal for tea party movement members albeit there have been a few breakthroughs like the candidacies of Rand Paul and Sharron Angle.

Sharron Angle: Stop Displaying My Views! - Politics - The Atlantic

she got incredibly stupid views, which she now is attempting to paper over. she avoided the press like they were lepers, and complained that she was only going to answer questions she wanted to answer. she believes pregnant incest victims should KEEP their children, she would like prohibition, she doesn't believe in the separation of church and state, she's a great candidate for reid!
