Gov. Tedesco? Hey, Sarah Palin was a local yokel before she was governor

Posted by on Fri, Apr 16, 2010 at 12:52 PM

Think John Tedesco is focused on the Wake school board? Watch him at the Tea Party in Raleigh yesterday, attacking "social engineering" and then, yes, Gov. Bev Perdue. There's no shortage of demagogues in the N.C. Republican Party these days, but have you seen anyone smoother, or more nakedly ambitious, than JT? (Or, as someone today dubbed him, Tea Party Tedesco.)

(Update: This just in: Nobody's ever heard of most of the Republican "leaders," including Tom Fetzer. So the way is clear, JT. Not that you hadn't thought of that already. Incidentally, I didn't post this video to YouTube; the person who did misspelled JT's name, obviously.)
