    For a moment I thought that was a Funny or Die video. But you can’t spoof the Tea Party, humor doesn’t work when the bizarre beliefs are so common. You should get a copy of “Pity the Billionaire.” I describe it a bit in the Tea Party Funk Machine post. If you look at the video, you’ll see more weirdness. a Tea Party protest with a young woman holding a sign that says “Dr. King was a Republican!” — following the ridiculous belief held by the group that they’re the protesting progeny of MLK, and — the equally nuts spectacle of someone marching with a placard that reads, “I <heart> capitalism!” You shake your head and laugh a bit then realize Tea Party politics have won for most of the Obama administration, they could easily take the country down with their annihilating world view, and you get a cold feeling.

    The spirit of the Dred Scott decision is alive and well.
