Iowa Rewriting Project
Left: The latest in a series of educational billboards instructing the citizenry on the quality of their leadership.
The North Iowa Tea Party paid to put up the billboard in downtown Mason City, drawing criticism — including criticism from others in the Tea Party movement. Rhodes, the chairman of the Iowa Tea Party, hopes the new blank slate that’s now in that spot could be put to better use.
“It’s got to be more than just the initial shock/fear value,” Rhodes says. “What we need is something that accomplishes our goals because our goals are about helping people understand and educating them about our nation’s founding and the path back to American exceptionalism.”
Correct, Mr. Rhodes. To properly illustrate our nation’s founding, the man in the middle should be owned by one of the others.
