More Tea Party Hijinks with Tim Ravndal

Shares

When I was in fifth grade, I lost an election for class president by one vote. I was devastated. It wasn’t until the end of the year, when I realized that the President never got to make a single decision nor even run a single meeting that I felt better about losing the position of power I had dreamed of.

Maybe someday Tim Ravndal will demonstrate the kind of thinking I did when I was 10.

Tim Ravndal, who headed the Big Sky Tea Party until he was ousted following a controversial message he posted on Facebook, has been tapped for a leadership post in the Lewis & Clark Conservative Tea Party organization in Helena.

Anyone willing to bet that within six months Tim will be the leader of the “Tough Tea Conservative Party Conservatives”?
