This Independence Day weekend marked the second incarnation of the fabled Tea Party movement, protesting the government’s growing involvement in economic matters. And, just like the first go-around, the July 4 protests saw an elected Republican official, undoubtedly hoping to harness some of that the popular unrest, taking the stage to a chorus of boos.
This time the recipient of the unforgiving welcome was Sen. John Cornyn. The crowd yelled at Cornyn, called him a traitor and shouted that he was "the problem" when he took the stage in Austin.
I will add that I sorta like this new development of these clowns booing their guys. It was also about 105F on the 4th of July. Not any of the corporate sponsors that were asked to sign on and pony up the big sponsorship money they were hoping for.
