A New Tea Party

Via Carnival of Liberty #15 at Combs Spouts Off we find this article at Eric's Grumbles Before the Grave.

Tea Bag

It calls for a new “tea party” where we send our local representatives a letter complaining about their spending habits with our money, and enclosing a tea bag to give them some historical perspective. He warns us to send it to local offices because nothing organic will make it through the biohazard testing in DC, but I wonder if even the local offices will accept tea bags.

Perhaps we could include the above picture, which is free of copyright?

At any rate, my electronic messages to my representatives have been unsatisfying. Only Maria Cantwell responded, and she sent me a form letter. I doubt she even knew I sent anything except for a tick mark on her “conservative wacko wants babies to die of starvation” column on her constituency checklist.

I like the teabag idea, too, though it appears that I'd be sending mine to different people than you would yours. I hadn't realized that you're in Washington 'til I noticed your letter to/response from Senator Cantwell. C'mon now, do you really think that we liberals believe conservatives - wacko or not ;-) - want babies to die of starvation?
