Talk About Preying On the Fearful And Naive
Possibly Going Too Far, Even For Them Dept: Some wingnuts in the
North Iowa Tea Party - enough said - have prompted criticism from even
their own ilk with a billboard
comparing the clearly Socialist Obama to the (ditto) Lenin and to the
(questionably so) Hitler - even if they do agree Obama is
"Hitler-esque." Silver Lining Dept: Democrat activists welcome the
"The purpose of the billboard was to draw
attention to the socialism. It seems to have been lost in the visuals." -
Tea Party leader Bob Johnson.
Update: The billboard was papered over today. A Tea Party leader said
it would be better to have a message "that's really actually helpful,"
which sounds like a nifty idea.
