I feel like I obviously handled this poorly, as far as the press goes. We really should have thought this through more … and seen how this was going to affect not only us, but other TEA parties and the TEA party movement in general.
Translation: I damned near set the eventual Republican nominee back ten points, and got my ass handed to me for being such a jackass. It’s a shame these yahoos didn’t go through with it. A photo of that spectacle would be good for $100k in Perriello contributions, easy. In the memory of a lot of people, though, it’s already happened. The burning has taken place. As surely as Republicans believe that President Obama is responsible for the bail-out, Democrats believe that Perriello has been burned in effigy by crazy Republicans. There’s no putting that genie back in the bottle.
