'Warning: Tea Party In Danger': Leader Slams Palin As 'Wolf In Sheep's Clothing'

'Warning: Tea Party In Danger': Leader Slams Palin As 'Wolf In Sheep's Clothing'
Zachary Roth | February 12, 2010, 9:59AM


A prominent Tea Party leader from Texas is warning that the movement "is becoming nothing more than a wholly owned subsidiary of the Republican Party," and slamming Sarah Palin as representing "a growing insider's attack to the heart of the Tea Party."

Dale Robertson, the founder of TeaParty.org, is just the latest Tea Partier to express concern that the movement is being hijacked by the GOP.

In a lengthy statement -- entitled "Warning: Tea Party In Danger" -- posted yesterday on the TeaParty.org homepage, Robertson instructs his felllow Tea Partiers to "{b}e alert to turncoats and deceivers being herded into the Tea Party by usurpers from the weakened Republican Party for the sole purpose of capturing our populist movement."

1. If they lose Sarah, they are done.
Just about every other repug is backing away from them. They are biting the hand that feeds them. Stupid teabaggers.

15. I don't know that it's a hand that they'd be biting...
...given that they are, after all, teabaggers, and it's not a hand that's feeding them. :)

5. Guess they didn't break even on their convention after
paying the Tea Party Queen over $100 K to stand around and talk/act like a middle school student.

6. Actually, they are right to be suspicious. The GOP is inserting Palin into their ranks
deliberately--they want to harness that energy and anger and then use it for the Republican party's gain. The GOP is otherwise moribund, except for this loonie-tunes media-magnet fringe.

8. As if it was EVER anything but a fully owned subsidiary!!
If not of the GOP then of the insurance industry. It's the John Doe Club of the 21st Century, made up of saps for the benefit of the powerful who need them to think they're doing big business's bidding of their own free will.

13. Palin is not dressed as a sheep--very clearly a wolf
She's one of the nastiest politicians to emerge in quite some time.
