[Tea Party Express spokesman Levi] Russell contended the NAACP is guilty of overstepping its bounds and of acting juvenile.
“As the tea party movement has gained political momentum, groups or individuals still playing the race card look like a foolish embarrassment to their own party,” he said. “It’s time for the NAACP to grow up and stop hiding behind hypocritical race-baiting politics.”
It occurs to me that it has been a long time since any sort of national group has been willing to so bluntly call Democratic hyper-partisan groups like the NAACP on their nonsense. Or to even so publicly state what everybody knows, but few want to say: the NAACP is a Democratic hyper-partisan group. Apparently, enough people in the Tea Party movement have internalized the lesson that since the Left is already calling them every name in the book, there’s no downside to plain talking.
