A thorough thrashing of the Tea Party.

Posted on December 25, 2010


A truly great article by Matt Taibbi about the Tea-Party “movement.”  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Here are a few choice quotes from the article:

“At times, their desire to withdraw from the brutally complex global economic system that is an irrevocable fact of our modern life and get back to a simpler world that no longer exists is so intense, it breaks your heart.”

And perhaps my favorite:

“Arguments with Tea Partiers always end up like football games in the year 1900 — everything on the ground, one yard at a time.”

I don’t think I’ll ever fully understand what the Tea Party is all about.  And, sadly, I don’t think the Tea Partiers will ever know either.
