This photo blew up on lefty web sites yesterday. Luckily, most happened to mention that the guy was from Houston!!
He's Dale Robertson of teaparty.org. We hope we don't need to mention that he's not Dale Robertson, the Houston Chronicle sportswriter.
The photo was taken at a Houston event last year; organizers say they kicked Robertson off the grounds because of it.
In case you're wondering, though, he's still out there giving radio interviews, as the teaparty.org website shows. Whether he's taking spelling lessons, we're not sure.
