Tea Party Counterprotest Fizzles in Napa
The maniacal racist demagogues of the Congressional Black Caucus aren’t the only enemies the Tea Party has to contend with. Last Saturday the Green Party declared its own war in northern California. Zombie reports:

Given what clowns they are, leftists are going to need more than the media on their side to hold down the Tea Party.
