Big ugly split with Dick Armey who wants to get on with his life.
Former congressman Dick Armey has quit FreedomWorks, the conservative group he helped bring to national tea party prominence.
Armey confirms that he wrote a letter to FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe on Nov. 30, resigning from the group, as first reported by Mother Jones. He told the Post that he does not know who leaked his resignation letter.
“We accepted his letter of resignation and we wish him well,” FreedomWorks press secretary Jackie Bodnar said.
“As I resign from all board positions and duties, please see below a list of dispositions on outstanding issues: I expect to be fully compensated through the expiration date (December 31, 2012) of my current consulting contract with FreedomWorks,” he wrote. “Henceforth FreedomWorks shall be prohibited from using my name, image, or signature in any way or for any purpose without my written permission or in the event of my death, without my heirs written permission.”
Eat yourselves ReTHUGs! I'm lovin' it!

4. I Love The Smell Of Circular Firing Squads In The Morning...
Methinks the Kochs haven't been happy with the "return" on their investment in the last campaign and want "answers"...aka scalps. Freedumpwerks was supposed to be the conduit for the big "Chick Fil A" wave of latent rushpublicans showing up at the polls to sweep teabaggers and Willard to victory and they failed. Think about it...for the $100 or so million these losers pumped into the campaigns, they came up with nada. Not only that...the artificial "grassroots" movement...the teabaggers are fizzling all over the place. The "brand name" is so tarnished teabagger groups are trying to change names. The whole concept is toxic (except for Grover). Dickhead's getting out so he can be in the clear to create his next scam. I'm sure he'll come up with one...the money in fleecing the rich is just too good.
