A BIGGER TEA PARTY TENT:

Texas Dems Grapple With Their Own Alvin Greene (HILARY HYLTON, 6/22/10, TIME)

[Surprise Democratic primary winner, congressional nominee Kesha] Rogers, 33, told TIME she is a "full time political activist" in the Lyndon LaRouche Youth Movement, a recruiting arm of the LaRouche political organization that is active on many college campuses. The LYM espouses LaRouche opposition to free trade and "globalism" (the UN, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund) and it also calls for a return to a humanist classical education, emphasizing the works of Plato and Leibnitz. On her professional looking campaign website, kesharogers.com, she touts the LaRouche political philosophy - a mix of support for the economic policies of President Franklin D. Roosevelt and the impeachment of President Obama - and calls Obama a "London and Wall Street backed puppet" whose policies will destroy the Democratic Party. During the campaign, she was photographed carrying an oversized portrait of the President with a Hitler-style moustache penciled on his lip.
