Tea Parties Their Due

From Camille Paglia. After going to Sheboygan this past weekend it's good to see some on the left are waking up to the fact of what and who the so called mobs at tea parties really are. Liberty and Freedom is not easy but what we are doing is honest and true to the future of this country. Were finnally getting our due.

A good read.
Too late for Obama to turn it around?
By Camille Paglia

"Why did it take so long for Democrats to realize that this year's tea party and town hall uprisings were a genuine barometer of widespread public discontent and not simply a staged scenario by kooks and conspirators? First of all, too many political analysts still think that network and cable TV chat shows are the central forums of national debate. But the truly transformative political energy is coming from talk radio and the Web -- both of which Democrat-sponsored proposals have threatened to stifle, in defiance of freedom of speech guarantees in the Bill of Rights. I rarely watch TV anymore except for cooking shows, history and science documentaries, old movies and football. Hence I was blissfully free from the retching overkill that followed the deaths of Michael Jackson and Ted Kennedy -- I never saw a single minute of any of it. It was on talk radio, which I have resumed monitoring around the clock because of the healthcare fiasco, that I heard the passionate voices of callers coming directly from the town hall meetings. Hence I was alerted to the depth and intensity of national sentiment long before others who were simply watching staged, manipulated TV shows. " Too late for Obama to turn it around? | Salon
