“We need to challenge the Tea Party representatives who like the Taliban shut our country down,” Bohlinger told reporters, according to the Billings Gazette.
The paper reported that Bohlinger compared the actions of tea party representatives in the lead-up to the shutdown to the 1941 Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor and the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
Umm. John, the Taliban did not attack America on 9-11. Al-Qaeda did.
