At the July 8, 2011 meeting of the Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission, TEA Party ‘patriots’ universally decried members of the Commission, openly accusing them of corruption, malfeasance, and secret agendas. One TEA Party ‘patriot’ contorted her face into the visage of one about to projectile vomit, as she uttered the word, ‘progressive’. Clearly, as evidenced by the verbiage of the TEA Party ‘patriots’ present, the concept of a progressive agenda, or progressive viewpoints and values, were held in great disdain.
Isn’t it odd, that TEA Party ‘patriots’ should hold in such contempt, the very word which one of our most stalwart and heroic Presidents adopted as the name of his party in the 1912 presidential election, the Progressive Party of Theodore Roosevelt?
