May 7, 2012
Analogies say more about the speaker than about the subject. Candy Crowley told KMOX Radio listeners on Friday that Tea Party groups resemble the Balkans without guns. Wrong. Crappy analogy, Candy. The diverse and autonomous, often quarrelsome,** Tea Party groups remind me of the original 13 colonies.** The colonies were divided on just about every subject imaginable. The disagreed on slavery, on economics, on agraculture, manufacturing, cities, names – name it.
