The Tea Party Triumverate (Bob Wilson, Don Swanson, and Vic Drummond) have all had their turn at vilifying a previous letter writer who had the audacity to humorously yet clearly spell out beliefs counter to theirs.
I am surprised some local papers accepted these letters, but I think everyone, including the original letter writer, is still privileged to think, speak and write their own beliefs by that very Constitution the Tea-folk claim to hold in such high esteem.
Apparently the obvious and acknowledged facts, presented in a tongue-in-cheek manner in the letter they each dispute, has pierced their hypocritical hearts and shaken their hide-bound attitudes cultivated so cleverly by Dick Armey, Karl Rove, the Koch Brothers, Messers. Beck, Limbaugh, Hannity and other radio and TV media people whose names are not as well known - at least not known by people who can manage to think for themselves.
The three obviously irritated letter writers named above continue to utter their oft-parroted remarks, and - to a man - resort to twisting the original letter writer’s clear content, minimizing her intent, and obviously proving their own intellectual abilities and personal integrity to be, shall we say, less than stellar.
In and of itself, their unanimously displayed inability to think, reason, or speak for themselves is telling.
To argue each of their twisted facts is a waste of time, and is apparently not within their powers of reason or comprehension. I can only say, the above “triumve'ranters” are not a credible group and I’m so glad I’m not involved in any way with any of these three or their organization.
