My latest for the examiner The Pauline Kaels of NPR:
“The current Republican Party, particularly the Tea Party, is fanatically involved in people’s personal lives and very fundamental Christian – I wouldn’t even call it Christian. It’s this weird evangelical kind of move,”
It appears he also missed the Twin City tea party meeting I covered in December where the panel of tea party leaders from the area said this:
The suggestion was to avoid social issues, the tea party is a movement based on fiscal responsibility and constitutional authority. The only approach to social issues if any would be constitutional insomuch as the Federal Government spending on items not authorized constitutionally or on 10th amendment grounds.
The whole NPR story is a minefield for the left.
