Telling It Like It Is

My friend, Simon Bendle in the United Kingdom recently posted this on Facebook:

“Just come across this for the first time: IrishPresident Michael D Higgins tearing into Tea Party supporter Michael Graham a few years back. Well worth a listen, if you haven’t heard it before. “Be proud to be a decent American,” says the ballsy little president, “rather than just a wanker whipping up fear.” How many other heads of state would say that on national radio? Makes me proud to be (half) Irish!”

It is so refreshing to hear a politician anywhere articulate the real purpose of the Tea Party.  Simon regularly opines on various matters on his “Bendle Blog.”
