Tea Party time in LR

Posted By on Sat, Jun 12, 2010 at 2:03 PM

Something called the Defend the American Dream Summit (a project of the Dick Armey/billionaire lobby to starve government) is underway at Robinson Auditorium today. Grover Norquist and assorted teabaggers are holding forth. (Periodic tax deadbeat Rep. Ed Garner is calling for a return to the gold standard. D.C. Morrison is preaching to the choir. Global warming is being debunked. Etc.)

You can get all the coverage you want in 140-character bursts of ecstasy fromTwitterer Laurie Masterson.

I did note this one report of potential political relevance among the day's topics:

Stephen Moore pushing French Hill for Senate (vs. Pryor in 2014).
