Congressman J. Gresham Barrett Booed at Greenville Tea Party

Here's the video from Greenville, South Carolina, where Congressman J. Gresham Barrett was booed:

At the Greenville SC Tea Party last night, via Palmetto Scoop, an estimated 3,000 people booed and heckled GOP Rep. Gresham Barrett, who supported both the trillion-dollar TARP and now supports the trillion-dollar porkulus package. The crowd blew air horns as he tried to speak. Do you think the politicians are getting the message yet? And do you think someone in the MSM might grow up, stop wallowing in sexual teabagging jokes, and report these newsworthy developments? The anger at reckless spenders in Washington is palpable, deep-seated, bipartisan, nationwide, and not going away ...
And about those "teabagging jokes, "Nihilist Noon over at Lawers, Gays and Marriage* is taking Scott at Power Line to task for "his ineptitude with the spell checker" and his "apparent inability to use the intertubes to find stuff out." And that reference to the "intertubes" would be for Urban Dictionary's entry for "Teabagger," where it says:

Teabaggers do not feel it is their responsibility to provide for the lazy socialist liberals who pollute our great country.
Yep, that sounds about right! Thanks Buttercup!

The anger at reckless spenders in Washington is palpable, deep-seated, bipartisan, nationwide, and not going away ...That is exactly right.

I am glad to see these RINOs getting theirs at the tea parties, as it helps put the lie to the idea that is enthusiastically being promoted by the left that we who attend these parties are nothing but a bunch of right-wing extremists who were sent out by Fox News and the RNC.

Honestly, I think it took some nerve on the part of J. Gresham Barrett to even show up at one of these events, much less step on to the stage.

LOL-I bet Congressman Barrett "gets it" now.

Do you call a Congressman with a American Conservative Union lifetime rating of 98 a RINO?
