In Hell: Two Years with Tea Party
Have you heard about these "Tea Partiers"? You might have missed them...they're a pretty quiet lot that prefers to lay low and let their carefully reasoned and well-crafted arguments do their talking for them. When I think of Tea Partiers, I tend to envision some frothy Randian with a tenuous grasp on economics, but this article suggests that the tax/libertarianism aspect of the group is largely flash-in-the-pan opportunism. The real core value of these people, as we all probably already know, is a rabid Christian fundamentalism that promulgates a revisionist version of US history as a means of legitimizing their batshit insanity. I for one am shocked! SHOCKED!
