Today is Sunday, May 22, 2011 and we must give kudos to the TU. I’ll even refrain from calling them the Tiny Union since they made headways today to publish a story with facts vs opinions.
Article: The front page headline of the TU states “Brown won it on issues, advisers, ground game”
We thank you for this great report. It appears you finally did some factual reporting. In doing so you vindicated what the tea party members said, posted, blogged, and pushed out as far as we could without a media giant behind us and with a small donation bucket from our tea party members. Our vindication came with these facts made public in the article:
Article: The Metro page headline: Holland stands by mayoral race vote tally
A stolen private email among tea party leaders about the mayor’s race and how we could learn from it was put into the hands of Abel Harding. He chose to put it into an article. Thank you for this article. We are proud to ask that every single vote count. That’s been the mantra of the left so we think they were on to something here. Joseph Stalin once said: “It’s not WHO votes that counts. It’s who COUNTS the votes.”
Article: Editorial – Our next mayor has a long road ahead
“He did not meet with tea party leaders. He should invite them to offer concrete suggestions.”
Thank you editors! We asked to meet with Mr. Brown over and over again during his campaign. He ignored us. He did not fill out our questionnaire. He did not meet with the board. He did not attend our Mayoral Town Hall Debate. He did not respond to any of our requests. We were stood up and we hope he heeds your advice. We await his call.
So today the Tea Party can proudly say – “We told you so.” You may have made fun of us for saying out-of-towners were here and paid workers were smoking pot outside the GOP headquarters (we called them Zombies since they had glassy eyes from the pot) BUT today you proved us right. Thank you TU!
And a special recognition to the team behind Alvin Brown – good job.
We learned a lot and we’ll see you in November 2012.
