SOME THOUGHTS ON WHERE THE TEA PARTY MOVEMENT SHOULD GO NEXT. Plus this: “Also, while this is and should remain a people’s movement, isn’t it time for some politicians to come out of hiding and start addressing, if not even attending some of these events? I suspect protesters have plenty of questions for them. . . . Lastly, anything scheduled for Chris Dodd’s Connecticut by chance? Two birds with one stone and all that.”
There was actually one in Hartford, but I agree that Dodd’s a natural target. In fact, protesters might consider targeting particular Senators or Representatives in their areas who are either (1) especially egregious offenders, or (2) susceptible to having their positions changed under pressure. Maybe even try to extract a promise that before voting on spending bills in the future, they’ll actually read them . . . .
