Tom Paine Returns
The Tea Party movement seems to have quieted down as Republicans found a more grippable political issue with Guantanamo Bay. Nonetheless, motivational speaker Bob Basso is out with another one of his videos where he plays the resurrected Thomas Paine and rants about liberty and taxes.
Basso achieved some real fame in the run-up to the Tea Parties, getting hired by Fox News to record a special “message from Thomas Paine” for their all-day coverage. This video has sort of sunk without a trace.
