Look, Crabill obviously has emotional problems, so I don't want to judge her too harshly. But the fact of the matter is that Crabill, at the behest of whatever demons inhabit her brain and soul, simply committed a Kinsley Gaffe -- she inadvertently spoke the truth about this extremist movement. She got to the heart of what these Tea Partiers really believe, namely, that it is somehow a expression of patriotism to overthrow their own democratically elected government because of policy differences over taxation.Republicans must choose: embrace the violent rhetoric of the Tea Party movement or let the Tea Party members go their own way.
Right now, there is a person, Catherine Crabill, running for a seat in the House of Delegates as a Republican. Crabill has openly advocated the armed overthrow of the government of the United States. The Republican Party of Virginia is going to be held accountable for that fact.
