WebXtra: Gilmer Tea Party

By Bob Hallmark - bio | email

GILMER, TX (KLTV) - At the tea party in Gilmer several people came really really prepared, but no one more than a man called simply "Icon"...

"You are a teabag, is that correct," I asked the man in the unusual outfit.

"That's correct," said Mr. Icon.

"And, why are you a teabag," I asked him.

"Well, a teabag is an icon," he explained. "It stands for our view on taxes the way the patriots viewed on taxes during the revolutionary times. There are no signs on this, it stands for itself. It doesn't need to be explained."

About 200 people showed up for the event.
