I’m a little surprised it took the Tea Party even 12 days on this one

Here's my tweet from the 9th:

And here's yesterday's news:
Arizona Tea Partiers Seek to Recall Sheriff for 'Politicizing' Giffords Case

The latest in the war of words sparked by the Tucson tragedy: Local tea party groups are actively working to recall Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik for "politicizing a tragedy" after he pointed a finger at Rush Limbaugh and other conservatives after the January 8 shootings of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., and 18 others.

On Friday, the nation's attention was focused on Giffords's move from the Tucson hospital where she was initially treated to a Houston rehabilitation facility. In Arizona, meanwhile, tea party activists are planning a “Dump Dupnik 2012” rally for January 28 outside the Pima County Sheriff’s Department. Dan Baltes, executive director of the Utah organization Americans Against Immigration Amnesty, is taking it a step further: He is organizing a recall effort.

It's not that much fun being right when they make it that easy.
