Tea Party Nose Cutters! (cartoon)

Via on Aug 4, 2011


It’s certainly good for politicians to listen to their constituents–it doesn’t happen enough. But, when their constituents are backed by rich influence, and when their constituents are so woefully close minded, you end up with corrupt politicians, ignorant constituents, and increasingly powerful and corrupt rich influence. Not good.
The Tea Party does not realize how harmful they are to themselves (and the rest of us).
