We recently hosted a second Repchatter podcast with Andy Sullivan, one of the founding members of the white hot political movement known as the Tea Party. Andy’s also founded bluecollarcorner.com and 911 Hard Hat Pledge.
As you’ll hear, Ted ‘Ludacris’ Birkhahn and I pulled no punches in asking Andy about the Tea Party’s agenda. We addressed the subject of religious freedom in the Ground Zero mosque controversy as well as the questionable credentials of some of the Tea Party candidates running for office.
Andy handled everything in his typically graceful style. Love or hate the Tea Party movement, they’ve earned the right to be front and center (as opposed to far right) in any and all conversations about our country’s future course. That said, your guess is as good as mine as to whether they’ll grow stronger or simply fade away just like every other Third Party movement.
RepChatter co-host Ted ‘Ludacris’ Birkhahn and I recently played host to Andy Sullivan, creator of bluecollarcorner.com and one of the founders of Tea Party 365.
Andy proved to be a worthy foil to Ted’s far left wing, pro big government sentiments as he made a solid, if somewhat disjointed, plea for a return to the way we were. As you’ll hear, Andy waxes poetic on everything from the peace-loving nature of Tea Party members to a prediction that Sarah Palin will fool everyone and waltz into the Oval Office in 2012. I’m not sure what inspired him to insert walkers and colostomy bags in the discussion, but the bluecollarguy promised a no holds barred chat and certainly delivered.
I hope you enjoy the podcast. Do me a favor and post your thoughts and/or follow-up questions for Andy. Andy, in turn, has promised to forward the link to the Tea Party universe, so this could get very interesting. One final note: Andy has agreed to do another RepChatter podcast on the eve of the 2010 midterm elections. We’d like to match him with a more knowledgeable and strident liberal spokesperson than Ted and would welcome your thoughts.
