"TEA Party" People to Burn Perriello, Pelosi in Effigy

Friday, November 13, 2009

Wow. Just wow.
In a move sure to spark controversy, the Danville TEA Party will close their "Fired Up for Freedom" rally by burning Rep. Tom Perriello and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in effigy in response to the passage of landmark healthcare legislation in the U.S. House of Representatives.

The event is being held Saturday at 5:30 p.m. in Blairs, VA at the corner of U.S. 29 and E. Witt Rd. and is open to the public.
My question is whether Robert Hurt, a supposed "moderate" Republican, condones this behavior. If so, then he's no "moderate." If not, of course, the next thing you know the "TEA Partiers" will be burning him in effigy too! We'll see whether hurt has the cojones to do the right thing here and condemn this. I'm not holding my breath, that's for sure.

UPDATE: Of course, Hurt spoke at a "Tea Party" event just a few weeks ago; does that mean he condones burning a congressman in effigy?
