I know the Tea Baggers claim to be the heirs of the original Boston Tea Party. Probably the politest mob in history. They didn't object to paying taxes, but they wanted to have representatives in the body deciding on the taxes.

No, our modern baggers have a closer resemblance to the British response to the Tea Party. Send over a fleet, occupy the city, close the Port of Boston, demand the tea be paid for even though by closing the Port there's no money to pay for it and then refuse to negotiate.

ladies and gentlemen time to hoist your true colors.

Since they all seem to have a Palinesque understanding of American history, I'm sure they would be quite mystified by your logic... :(

I WAS hoping that since they're all into this Tea Party schtick that at least some of them would know why there were troops in Boston, but I guess that was too much to hope for.
