Of Rick Santelli and Tea Parties

You’ve seen Rick Santelli and the “Rant of the Year” by now, surely. Just in case you haven’t, here it is:

You have probably also seen or heard how White House press secretary Robert Gibbs (a political hack since collegecriticised Santelli. And perhaps you’ve seen Santelli’s response on Kudlow’s show. But one of my favorite videos in all of this is the following – financial expert Karl Denninger delivers an epic smackdown to Gibbs:

When I first heard about Santelli’s original rant I wanted to know when the Chicago Tea Party would be held so I could be there. Well, plans are in the works for a “Nationwide Chicago Tea Party“, sponsored by the #DONTGO movement, Smart Girl Politics, Americans for Tax Reform, Heartland Institute, Top Conservatives on Twitter (#TCOT), and the American Spectator to be held Friday, Feb 27 at Noon EST. Get more info and join the party here.

All this talk of tea party protests reminded me of December 16, 2007, when Ron Paul supporters held tea party protests all across the country (as well as Strasbourg, France and New Zealand) and raised over $6 million in a single day for Ron Paul’s presidential campaign, breaking all single day fundraising records. What a great day that was.









I hope the Chicago Tea Party will be even more successful. It’s good to have new allies in the fight for freedom and liberty.
