Sessions: One-third of Tea Party is Democrats

Anti-gay Republican Dallas Congressman Pete Sessions, right, has joined the Tea Party Caucus founded by Minnesota Republican Michele Bachmann, left. I don’t know which is scarier — the political reality of this situation or these side-by-side photos of the pair. But I also wanted to share this mind-boggling assertion from The Hill’s story:

Sessions said that every Tea Party event that he’s been to over the past year and a half has consisted of “one-third Democrats, one-third Republicans and one-third Independents. They are 100 percent fired up about trying to save this country from a big government that is taxing, spending and causing deficit.”
