I didn't realize the Tea Party had a monopoly on use of colonial outfits and rhetoric, Indie.

But if you want to live in your conservative media/blogger self-validating echochamber (no better than the wacky lefty one) than may as well enjoy the glee you get from run of the mill Google Juice like this.

Two years of snark here, from the left-wing media, and President Obama himself directed at the tricorn hats and Gadsden flag and lo and behold...

Sometimes a tall glass of Google Juice really hits the spot.

If you think it's about the tricorn hats and Gadsden then you haven't learned or figured out a single thing in the last two years.

I would love the Tea Party if it weren't for those damn hats and "Don't Tread on Me" flags. You are right about that, boss!

Was he involved in a Tea Party style protest of the sort the current Tea Party has been involved in at the time of that photo? Or was this just some goofy parade/costume thing he was part of?

'Cause if it's the latter...then, um, yeah, the two situations aren't even close to comparable. And wow, yeah, some people made fun of the Tea Party's getups. People make fun of the goofy getups of ANY protest movement (lord knows the left certainly gets its share of ridicule for what it dresses up in sometimes at protests).

But ultimately, as stated, the costumes were the least of many people's objections to the current Tea Party.

He forgot the poster of himself as a monkey

He looks really cute in that outfit, I wish he'd wear it again

IRS official apologizes to tea party groups for "incorrect" scrutiny during 2012 election - CBS News

IRS official apologizes to tea party groups for "incorrect" scrutiny during 2012 election

An IRS official apologized on Friday to tea party organizations and other conservative groups for inappropriately targeting them during the 2012 election, the Associated Press reports.

The groups, which enjoyed tax-exempt status under the internal revenue code, were singled out for additional scrutiny of their tax exemption if their names included the words "tea party" or "patriot." In several cases, the groups were asked to provide a list of donors for review, usually a violation of IRS policy.

"That was wrong. That was absolutely incorrect, it was insensitive, and it was inappropriate. That's not how we go about selecting cases," said Lois Lerner, the head of the IRS division that oversees tax-exempt groups. "The IRS would like to apologize for that."
Kinda vindicates the whole message.

Our...liberty...is...shrinking...because...the...federal...government...is...out...of...control!!!
