“The rise of a new conservative grass roots fueled by a secular revulsion at government spending is stirring fears among leaders of the old conservative grass roots, the evangelical Christian right,” according to Politico.
Here’s the truth: The GOP trough-dwellers are horrified that the American people might be fed up with both bloated hot-tub parties that are in the grip of the war industry, the banksters, and the insatiable special interests.
Curiously, Politico does not mention war at all. But like its fellow troughdwellers, it trembles too, since the Tea Partiers don’t feed lazy DC reporters leaks that foment Washington’s endless juvenile vendettas. In fact, the Tea Party folks might actually be more devoted to Christian principles than the boastful religious tax-hikers and warmongers who long for an American/Israeli attack on Iran that will bring on Armageddon in the Middle East. Wonder of wonders, they might even go so far as to obey “Thou Shalt Not Kill” and “Thou Shalt Not Steal” !11:54 am on March 12, 2010 Email Christopher Manion
