So, how does the tea party plan to bring pressure that hot? Three ways:
Last week, the St. Louis Tea Party dominated Fox News Channel for an entire week. Had two guests on Fox and Friends, one on Greta and Cavuto, clips and recorded interviews on Hannity and hourly news programs. We never received this coverage because of a rally, but because we are backing McCaskill into a corner.
While rallies in parks are fun and make us feel better for a couple of days, we must, instead, hold events that make the statists feel worse for several weeks. Or for many years. According to Politico, up to 40 percent of the members of the majority party in Congress will NOT return to their home districts and states during the recess. They can't stand the heat of the boiling tea pots.
