I am listening to his CSPAN apprsance as I type, and I have the same reaction; he is one of the good ones. He refered to himself as a "citizen legislator" and rattled off the best descrption of the Tea Party platform I've heard. It's at minute 4:10:
The Tea Party boils down to three things: effective and efficient constitutional government, national security and free market free enterprise solutions.
7:00 to 8:45 is really good also. Truly a great American - I'd vote for him in a heartbeat from what I've seen so far.
Just listened to West link to C-Span. The guy doesn’t miss a beat...knows what he thinks and how to present it very well. Admire the man...you cannot help but do so. He is so good for our country.
