J.C. Watts: A Lot Of Those Howard Dean Folks Are With The 'Tea Party' Folks Today

Former Oklahoma Rep. J.C. Watts wants us to believe that the Koch brothers funded astroturf Republican re-branding effort is one, grass roots, and two, that it started with the followers of Ross Perot and Howard Dean. I don't think so J.C. If there's anyone you could say the "movement" was high jacked from, it's Ron Paul.

Sadly neither Dylan Ratigan or Ari Melber bothered to point out to Rep. Watts that it's pretty unlikely that there are very many of if any of Howard Dean's former supporters that are out there with those teabaggers protesting. The "Tea Party" protesters are the far right wing of the Republican party and some Libertarians. They're not liberals that supported Howard Dean.
