Bypassing the big one:
FOX Nation is promoting the second run of the Tea Party Express
. It's going to run up California, Oregon, and Washington and then head to Texas and finish up in Florida.
But a closer look at the route shows that it's going to bypass Los Angeles, the second largest city in the nation.
It also won't stop in Seattle (it will go to Portland). Basically the Tea Party stuff is for non urban America. That's a niche market. Is that where Fox gets its good ratings? From Rural America?
Will it stop in Spokane? It's one of the most right-wing cities in the country. I live in eastern Washington, which is very conservative. This state could be fairly described as half-blue, half-red.
makes me want to buy a gun. they're pissing me off.
"When life hands you lemons, make lemonade."
"When the Republican Party gets in hot water, its base brings tea bags."
Steep in that, wing-nutst!
Actually they are going to LA
well, watching them further marginalize themselves does bring some satisfaction.
Actually, they're coming closer to me than Spokane. They'll be in Richland, Washington, gathering in a high school gym. I live just across the Columbia River in Pasco. Might go over there just to observe wingnuts in their natural habitat, and to make fun of them.
