    But yeah, this happens in both parties literally every election SOMEWHERE in the country. Yet both sides try to take the moral high ground.

    Oh wait, I guess this means I hate America and freedom and apple pie and babies.

    Michigan Democrats Told Their Fake Tea Party Is Illegal

    The Michigan Supreme Court has made the final decision eliminating the fraudulent “Tea Party” Party from the 2010 elections.

    Two of Michigan’s Democrat appointed justices joined its small three Republican appointed contingent to declare the so-called “Tea Party” Party ineligible for the ballot.

    For months various Democrats and union members have been trying to create a new political party in Michigan misleadingly named the “Tea Party” Party. 23 candidates had been slated from this Democrat dirty trick effort in order to confuse voters...

    ...at least one Democrat to be thrown out of his party position...

    No actual Tea Party groups in Michigan had any connection with the effort...

    Some of the supposed candidates for this fake “Tea Party” group were not told they were candidates... one has never registered to vote in Michigan, and another has lived out of state for years and was also not aware he was being offered as a candidate for office.

    This was nothing but an illicit Democrat dirty trick effort meant to destroy the integrity of the elections.

    So where is the bias? Read on.

    NYT Bemoans Republican's Fake Candidates, Ignored Nearly Identical Democratic Ploy

    "Republican Runs Street People on Green Ticket" blares the headline on the front page of today's Times...

    The paper's new-found concern for political dirty tricks was nowhere to be seen, however, when a Democratic Party official ran 23 candidates on the specious "Tea Party" ticket in Michigan. The state Supreme Court recently ruled that The Tea Party cannot appear on the ballot in November.

    Meanwhile, about 2000 miles away...

    The Oakland County Democratic Party says it has requested and accepted the resignation of operations director Jason Bauer in the wake of accusations he notarized campaign filings for a fake Tea Party candidate.

    Was a crime committed? Well, the Detroit Free Press reminds us that "Misusing notary public designation is punishable by suspension or revocation of the notary status and a civil fine of up to $1,000."

    Despite these facts, the New York Times has yet to run a single story on the Michigan controversy...

    Re: Michigan Democrats Told Their Fake Tea Party Is Illegal

    Maybe a small time fraud case isn't national news? I mean I read it and I find myself not caring. If I was the editor of a National news paper I'd ask myself, "Where is the national importance/interest?" in a story before I ran it. I don't think this story has either.

    Also I wouldn't normally point out spelling mistakes but do you misspell journalists on purpose, because I constantly see you spell it "Journolists" and its always capitalized. Whats up with that?

    I also like it when Liberals claim themselves to be Conservatives and then attack real Conservatives.

    It is true there are dirt bags in both parties that is why the Tea Party has taken root, it's time for change.
    Hey.... that's pretty good.

    The tea party took root in the dirt bags of both parties.

    The idea that the tea party are using Saul Alinsky's handbook is laughable considering that nationalism, race baiting, mockery, spinning the press, playing on peoples prejudices, negative politics are just some of the dirty tricks straight out of Lee Atwater's playbook. Ya'll know who Lee Atwater is, doncha? He was Karl Rove's mentor.

    I get the impression that trying to organize the tea party into a unified co-hesive movement is like trying to herd cats. So after the tea party uses Alinsky's tactics to create social instability, then what? Is it going to be like the Iraq invasion with no plan for the after math? We all saw how well that worked out, now didn't we?

    Good point. I have an idea for a new soft drink and thought I would name it Coca-Cola. You don't think anyone would mind do you?
