Teabagging or Partisan Hackery?

Hey, hey, hey, the beauty of all these anti- (take your pick) -tax, -deficit, -progress tea parties was that they were truly grass-roots, free from the partisan political hackery that many believe in responsible for the country's fiscal woes in the first place. Then what to make of the Saddleback Republican Assembly announcing it "is finalizing plans for Mission Viejo's July 4th TEA (Taxed Enough Already) Party"? That sounds about as grass-roots as a monster truck pull.

The actual party is expected to last from 7 to 8:30 p.m. near the intersection of Olympiad Road and Melinda Road and the eastern entrance to Mission Viejo's July Fourth Street Faire and fireworks show, where the Saddleback Republican Assembly (SRA)--which is listed among the Orange County Republican Party's officially sanctioned clubs--promises to sponsor other "activities" and register voters beginning at noon. The SRA will also have petitions available to sign calling for the recall of Mission Viejo City Councilman and perceived RINO (Republican in Name Only) Lance MacLean.

At 7 p.m. is when emcee Jeff Morrow is supposed to help shift gears from purely partisan to not openly partisan, rallying the faithful who are urged to bring protest signs, American flags and pitchforks. Diamond Tom provides live music. Potential Teabaggers are urged to call SRA president Matt Corrigan at (949) 830-8088 for more information or to help out. Updates will also be posted on MissionViejoCA.org, the MissionViejoDispatch.com and what SRA call "the county's premier blog," OrangeJuiceBlog.com. In yer face, Jubal!

By the way, SRA's favorite net pundit, Atrios, recently showed how these teabag protests are costing the government money.
