It is becoming more and more evident that the Tea Party has taken over the Montana GOP. This week, it is Ravalli County legislator Bob Lake (R-Hamilton) who pens a defense of the Tea Party in the Ravalli Republican:
The TEA (taxed enough already) Party movement and the various conservative groups that have formed over the past few years are but a reflection of the frustrations that many people are feeling toward the government.
He goes on to say that
The TEA party and other groups are predominately made up of the old “silent majority” that simply kept their heads down and went to work to try to make a better life for their children than the one they had.
Really, Bob? I think it’s something quite different.
