There’s no word on whether the Tea Party will be adopting
either “Heroin” or “Venus In Furs” as the movement’s unofficial anthem, but in
the meantime, erstwhile Velvet Underground drummer Moe Tucker has pledged her
allegiance to the Tea, as the video, below, illustrates.
As The Guardian reports, Tucker was interviewed
earlier this year by WALB-TV at Tea Party gathering in Tifton, Georgia, not far
from her home in Douglas, Georgia – she can be spotted at about 2:38 into the
clip – and is quoted as saying, “I’m furious about the way we’re being led
towards socialism. I’m furious about the incredible waste of money when things
that we really need and are important get dropped because there’s no money
left.” The clip went viral this past weekend.
We also learn that Tucker has a Tea Party-affiliated web page and has posted screeds including this one: “This ‘administration’ HAS TO GO! I
have come to believe (not just wonder) that Obama’s plan is to destroy America from
within. It is the only reasonable explanation for his actions/inactions!” You
have to sign up at the Tea Party website in order to access the page, however –
