‘Tea Party Godfather’? Is the AP Serious?

Question of the day: What’s the AP been smoking?

The beauty of the Tea Party is that it’s truly a relatively leader-less movement, but I guess if you had to give it a “Godfather” it might be Rick Santelli. If there’s a Tea Party favorite among possible presidential candidates, Sarah Palin, Herman Cain and Michele Bachmann would be on the list way ahead of Ron Paul.

Is it just a coincidence that Ron Paul recently said the raid to kill Osama bin Laden was “absolutely not necessary” and now they’re trying to make him into a Tea Party leader?

Update: Another possible motive for the MSM to try to pawn off Paul as a Tea Partier is here.
