Native Tea Partiers

TPAINThere was an article in the Washington Post today about the lack of a central ‘Tea Party’ organizational structure. The main thrust of the article is that the lack of this central authority means that the power of the Tea Partiers is being diluted among a lot of causes and candidates. This is keeping it from being as powerful a movement as it could be.

Well, I tried. Back on February 7, I announced the formation of a new Tea Party umbrella group, TPAIN, whose aim it was to concentrate the power of the disaffected and angry. The Tea Parties for America’s Indivisible Nation group was supposed to focus all of this anger into real change. We kept it up for a while, but it never really took off the way I’d hoped. There have been some, well, issues.

Mainly, it’s difficult to meet up with other TPAIN members since we’re spread out across all of America. I thought at first that we could use webcams and such to teleconference, but it seems that most TPAIN members only have dial-up, or are connecting from a library computer. Webcam conferences were a bust.

Second, it’s difficult to separate the TPAIN brand from the other Tea Party groups. But don’t worry, I have an excellent idea. It not only makes us immediately stand out from the crowd, but also demonstrates our superior grasp of American history.

Most Tea Partiers go to rallies dressed in tri-corner hats or other colonial costumes, but that doesn’t truly represent the original Tea Party. Most people forget that the real original Tea Partiers of the Boston Tea Party actually dressed up as Mohawk Indians. So I propose that real modern Tea Partiers (as represented by TPAIN) also dress up as Mohawk Indians at every rally. It will make us stand out, and we might even pick up some Native American support.
