A belated Happy Birthday to the Tea Party

Font Size:

A lot of people are noting that today is the 5th anniversary of the first Tea Party protests. But here’s where it all started, the previous week.

Rick Santelli, 2/19/09:

He called for a “Chicago Tea Party” that July, but it only took a little over a week for the idea to take off nationwide. This moment was when it was born. Five years ago today, it took its first steps.

And the Tea Party still angering freedom-hating statist jerks, both left and right, to this day.

Say it loud, say it proud!

Update: Most Americans disappointed in Obama’s presidency, poll says. Oh. That must be because the Tea Party is dead. #LOL
