Of course, a third party run by faux conservatives would split the GOP vote and send the truly disreputable Harry Reid back to DC.
Research by the Nevada News Bureau -- via Flopping Aces -- turns up the background of the group's founders. And it's apparent that they're neither conservative nor Republican.
Here are some snippets from my research so far... Barry Levinson was part of the “Bush Lied, People Died” cabal (very strange creds for a Tea Party guy).
...Not really core to the story but one of the principals, Larry Lathum, appears to be a 9/11 Truther...
But there is a way to thwart these jamokes and minimize the damage they can incur to a conservative Republican candidate.
The Chaff ApproachNevadans who are so inclined are urged to file similar petitions to that of the "Tea Party of Nevada". I suggest the following names for these parties, who will all run a candidate for the office of Senate.
• The Nevada Tea Party
• Tea Parties 'R Us
• Give Me Tea or Give Me Meth
• Tea Baggers United Under Barney's Frank
• Tea Party O' Rama
• Rahm Emanuel's Disco Tea Party
• The Mister Tea Party
• The Iced Tea Party
• The Pit Tea Party
• Super Happy Fun Karaoke Party
Ten or so additional parties on the ballot should sufficiently dilute the impact of the traitorous "Tea Party of Nevada".
Who's with me?
