Letterman Gets a Tea Party Education

Posted on Mar 31, 2010
Letterman and Stout

David Letterman didn’t exactly lob any hardballs in his interview with Idaho tea party activist Pam Stout on Tuesday night’s show, opting instead to have a light and informative exchange on Stout’s own history and where she believes the movement might be headed in the near future. No Obama-as-Hitler signs were raised, but there was a hint o’ birther talk from her end during their tête-à-tête.  —KA

she used code words that are tuned for a racist
view of history etc. welfare, self responsibility
etc. yet what would all those dislocated
workers do?  she is full of nonsense afraid to
think she lies if she is a pacifist???  she is
representative of the great cloud of ignorance
we are faced with in this country where the
dots are not connected. ask her if a choice -
guns - one trillion a year for the pentagon- or
elder housing or social security or school for
her children how about infra structure for the
small business she supports- 30 billion to the
narco state but cuts cuts for the tax payer—it
is tragic that she is in a fog she will need to
choose—- she will choose war on people that
are the other   until she is in the poor house
with her welfare people.
