Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) will deliver the Tea Party’s response to President Obama’s State of the Union address next week. [...]Actually, I guess it's a little unfair to suggest that only a half-dozen people are looking forward to it. Surely, the number is larger than that, even if it's only out of the morbid curiosity to see if anyone can top Michele Bachmann's bizarre inaugural tea party response in 2010.
“For the Tea Party movement, 2014 is not just about taking back the Senate, but it is also about putting forward conservative ideas that will allow for America to prosper. Senator Mike Lee has been both a Tea Party hero for supporters across the nation, and a conservative leader in the Upper Chamber,” Tea Party Express Chairman Amy Kremer said in a statement.
Meanwhile, we still don't know who the GOP will tap to
choke on deliver their response to President Obama's speech. The friendly conjecturers at Politico have concocted a top ten list of would-be Bobby Jindals ranging from Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker at the top of the list to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie at the bottom of the list, but their guess is as good as yours or mine. I've taken a few of their names, added a couple of my own, and put them in a poll to see if we can "outsmart" the GOP. So who do you think will be their savior next Tuesday?
