The Tea Party as target, &c.

We used to say, “There’s nothing you can’t say about Clarence Thomas. There’s nothing so low, vile, and defamatory that it cannot be said about Thomas by respected news organizations.” The same may be true of the Tea Party.

This wonderful movement — something new under the sun, calling us back to the Constitution and limited government — has been painted as racist, kooky, and violent. I have heard things said about the Tea Party, by otherwise sensible and nice people, that are absurd and foul. They have never met anyone who belongs to the Tea Party; they just parrot what they hear and read.
