The Tea Party and Good Spirits

I did a Google search on “Tea Party Now” and found Colin Woodard‘s post, The Soul of the Tea Party. Here is an excerpt from the article:

The libertarian insurgents are currently gathered around Andrew Ian Dodge, a science-fiction writer and amateur rocker (with a penchant for writing lyrics about reducing the size of government), who serves as the unpaid coordinator for Maine’s Tea Party Patriots. Unlike folks on the Christian right, he and his allies aren’t tied in to a network of endowed think tanks, private universities, and broadcasting outlets that help to amplify their message. And Dodge is skeptical of groups like the Tea Party Express, which, he says, is “a Republican front run by Republican apparatchiks.” As an outsider, he’s enjoying having a chance at being on the inside, and he’s not going to give up his seat so easily. “Look at me: I’m a hairy guy with an earring. It’s a new environment on the American right where someone like me fits in, one driven not by an individual but by a core belief system.” A belief system that is made up of the nonreligious tenets of fiscal responsibility, free-market economics, and limited government, according to Dodge. (The Newsweek, December 1, 2010.)

I must say that Andrew Ian Dodge seems to be in good spirits here at the St Louis Tea Party on 9/12, 2010. Maybe he would enjoy a Long Island Iced Tea or some other Tequila drink at the Tea Party?

I think that John Cox would say “yes” to a “cold one” at the next tea party event with Andrew Ian Dodge and give a shout out to the true spirit of Tea Party movement with the following words: “Yeah, Baby!John Cox has made the graphics for www.ElectTheDodge.com. We at TeaParty.nu are preparing for a Tea Party Revolution and will continue to brew a strong cup of tea for the supporters of the Tea Party movement

[Editor's note to the webmaster @ElectTheDoge: Check the spelling of John Cox's given name.]
[UPDATE: 2011-07-25. The spelling of John Cox's given name is now correct.]
