Welcome To The Tea Party
I have been watching the Tea Party movement in the States for the last year, they have
been slightly more than successful in grabbing 'There is something wrong with steering' Kennedy's old seat in the US Senate. Or as the Guardian calls them-'What sort of person could unite this rag-tag collection of tax-hating gun nuts and single-issue cranks? '
The Grauniad still believes that the second coming has happened then !
The 'Chosen One' worshipping of Obama when he was elected was nauseating enough, our own dear Kerry MP Bristol East was out there campaigning on behalf of the good people of Bristol for his election. The BBC told us that angels would appear on the earth and Doves fly into the Sky.
The reality is that the American Economy so long dependent on the Consumer, is in hock to China, Guantánamo Bay is still open for business and the Iraq/Afghanistan mess continues with the prospect of another pre announced offensive. (They did not do this in the First World War !)
Anyway,now that the word of the chosen one has been challenged by the voters, the BBC has decided to get down and find out why the good people of Massachusetts voted for Senator Brown, by going to interview 'the people who oppose the President' in Kentucky and Arkansas !!
Hopefully for the BBC, it can stoke up the implication that this is a racist conspiracy from nothing more than a bunch of Good Ol' Rednecks South of the Mason Dixon line. This is a new low for the BBC.
Here is a map so that BBC Executives can work out Mass, KY and AR
The BBC should not have to worry too much, our two party system is not as sophisticated as the two hundred year old American one. A Barbary Ape with a Blue Rosette could win most seats with minimal interference from 'Independents'.
