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.
