Tea Party Representative Mark Williams: "Real American"

Via Nicholas Graham

"Tea Party" leader Mark Williams appeared on a CNN panel on "Anderson Cooper 360" last night and promptly set to work discrediting himself and his movement. Williams denounced those carrying blatantly racist signs against President Obama during the tea parties as "no more part of the mainstream of America than the hippies who wear nipple clips and feather boas in San Francisco streets during so-called peace demonstrations."

Cooper had done his homework, however, and caught Williams blatantly misrepresenting himself: "What you're saying makes sense to me here when I'm hearing what you say but then I read on your blog, you say, you call the President an Indonesian Muslim turned welfare thug and a racist in chief."

Williams shrugs and responds, "Yeah, that's the way he's behaving." An incredulous Cooper asks Williams if he really believes Obama is an Indonesian Muslim and a welfare thug. The tea party leader digs the hole a little deeper: "He's certainly acting like it. Until he embraces the whole country what else can I conclude."

Can I ask one thing about these "working stiffs", where were they in 2001 - 2009 when everything from needless war, tarp, Patriot Act to deregulation and the bailout hit? I smell somethin' and it ain't cookin'.
The crowd is disproportionately white, retirement age, Southern Bush supporters (trust me, a Southern, Democratic Atheist, Intellectual, learns young to spot'em before he runs out of maneuverin' room "I can spot'em in the dark" but I digress), few if any where happy when they sobered up after the election results were reported. They don't want their country back from the government. They do want it back from a black man, Liberals, them damn Democrats and others (people that don't watch Cluster Fox and Friends).
That talking head Mark Williams, should be forced to publicly retract his statement and kiss Glenn Beck on the mouth.
