Forget "angry white men." In the male-dominated world of conservative politics, the tea party stands out as a movement of energized and organized women. In particular, moms....I agree with Loesch, motherhood has become a political act. And like the future of our children, we're also about protecting the future of motherhood. We're smart, active, and perhaps a little angry when someone invades our territory.
Dana Loesch, talk host and co-founder of the St. Louis tea party, believes the tea party movement is the modern conservative version of "the personal is political."
"Motherhood itself has become a political act," says Ms. Loesch. "And the tea parties are an extension of our need as moms to protect the future for our children."
Michelle Obama grows a garden of arugula on the White House lawn and orders "Let's Move"and the nation jumps. But Michelle Obama doesn't make the food decisions in my house, I do. Her authority stops at the end of the White House driveway. And the same goes for Pelosi and her House too. The Tenth Amendment was written for a reason.
Just this week a third grader in Texas was given a one-week detention for possession of a Jolly Rancher! School officials feared that if they didn't follow the state guidelines they'd lose federal funding. Since when did an individual student's weight become a federal issue?
I say it's time to start a competing campaign, "Let's Evict" and get government out of our houses once and for all! It's time our elected officials started fearing momma.
Happy Mother's Day!
