    ...and the Tea Party Express for racism.

    There is so much hilarious about this I don't know where to start.

    (CNN) -- The National Tea Party Federation, an organization that represents the Tea Party political movement around the country, has expelled conservative commentator Mark Williams and his Tea Party Express because of an inflammatory blog post he wrote, federation spokesman David Webb said Sunday.

    Appearing on the CBS program "Face the Nation," Webb said that Williams and the Tea Party Express -- which has held a series of events across the country to generate support for the movement -- no longer were part of the National Tea Party Federation.

    Yes, but first rule of Tea Party is, there is no Tea Party. Suddenly they have an organization with leadership and authority over subordinate members!?

    Sounds like tyranny to me.

    I wonder if Mark Williams will get a job at Fox now.

    No one has never said there is no TEA party. What has been said there is no leader of the TEA party. I do hope you see the difference. I doubt it but I hope you do.

    Edit

    On second thought If the tea party does pick a leader Herman Cain would have my vote.

    The leaderless movement attacks Barack Obama's supposed lack of leadership.

    I just think it's noteworthy that the tea party (non)leadership is doing exactly what the NAACP admonished them to do.

    Looks like the NAACP had it absolutely right.

    Looks like the Dem party has a new member. Robert Bird just died, I'll bet the Dems are looking for a new KKK Senator eh?
