Leftist congresscritter calls Tea Parties "shameful" and "despicable"

My odious congresscritter, Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), called yesterday's Nationwide Tea Party protests "shameful" and "despicable." I'm not surprised, the Evanston Democrat is one of the few members of Congress who is more left-wing than Barack Obama.

I saw Schakowsky on Fox 32 Chicago last night attempting to explain her way out of her obnoxious comments. Like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, she claimed that this is a false grass roots movement, aka astro-turfing, something that Barack Obama adviser David Axelrod is an expert in. (Schakowsky didn't mention that last part.) She also said that the Tea Parties, just as Pelosi did, had been hijacked by the Republican Party.'s phrase is "Democratic Party talking points."

Oh, and their statement(s) are false. For instance, Republican National Committee Chairman asked if he could speak at the Chicago party. He was told "No."

Astro-turf this, Jan and Nancy.

Here are my talking points: For starters, Schakowsky's politico husband, Robert Creamer, is an ex-con who served five months in federal prison three years ago for kiting checks while serving as the executive director of a consumer advocacy group, the Illinois Public Action Council. Schakowsky was not implicated in the scheme, but she was serving on the board of directors when the crimes took place.

In 2002, Creamer was a top staffer for the Rod Blagojevich gubernatorial campaign.
