A surprising Tea Party tidbit

A crumpet, if you will, on Wednesday's Tea Parties on the West Side.

Initiative entrepreneur Tim Eyman is urging supporters to attend the Tea Parties to gather signatures for Initiative 1033, his latest attempt to rein in property taxes.

That's not surprising; that's just good strategy.

But what is surprising in a missive he sent to "Our thousands of supporters throughout the state (cc'd to the media, house & senate members, and Governor)" are his plans for the day. He's speaking at the Tea Party in Olympia and Seattle. He's got five minutes at the microphone at each event.

Tim Eyman speaking for only five minutes? Now that's shocking.
