Fenway Nation puts it best: “Astroturf Yields Weak Coffee Crop. Dozens Turn Out Nationwide For ‘Successful’ Coffee Parties”. Read the whole thing.
Insty has more:
- Coincidence: “And here’s some more background on Coffee Party organizer Baxter Swilley. He was John Edwards’s [error in possessive corrected – Ed.] MO political director at the time. . . . Oh, then he was spokesperson for the Illinois Lt. Gov, who threatened his girlfriend with a knife.” Just another ordinary American fed up with the sewer that modern politics has become. More here. Including identical press releases for Coffee Party events in different states.
- Coffee party events quite racially… monochromatic.. (From a pretty hilarious inside report.)
- While we’re on the subject of “Strange Brew”, here is coffee with Cream that I like a whole lot better (courtesy of Messrs. Baker, Bruce, and Clapton)
UPDATE: Dan Riehl has more on the far-left connections of, well, just about every “coffee party” organizer here and here. As a “grassroots” “nonpartisan” movement this doesn’t even pass the laugh test.
