Does Rick Santelli Have New Rant Competition at CNBC?

SullivanRick Santelli, whose 2009 rant suggesting a Chicago Tea Party won him “father of the tea party” acclaim, isn’t the only CNBC personality capable of passionate, political pleas: his colleague Brian Sullivan delivered one this morning.

“We keep saying ‘the Republican Party’…but I don’t know who the Republican Party is anymore,” Sullivan said on “Morning Joe.”

He highlighted growing up in a conservative household, but as a modern-day fiscal conservative, who supports same-sex marriage and marijuana legalization, he is a voter without a political home.

Sullivan’s frustration escalated to full-blown screaming.

“It’s not a party, unfortunately Republicans, that I can get on board with, because I don’t like the small-minded attitude of a lot of the right wing stuff that comes out,” Sullivan said after banging the table.

Watch his rant, starting around the 12:12 mark, after the jump.
