"The Tea Party is the American Taliban..."

I know this is just TV, but godamnit... Goosebumps, I tell ya. Goosebumps.



Why can't we have a real-life high profile Republican with enough spine to say this, Jon Huntsman Jr.'s mini-rant notwithstanding?

Another poignant scene from my current favorite TV show.

"So when you ask what makes us the greatest country in the world, I don't know what the fuck you're talking about."

2. That's what I've been calling them. Unfortunately the entire GOP

3. A very loud minority can cause normative conformity among the remaining majority.

One has to only look back at the McCarthy era, and more recently, the lemming-like press corps at the onset of the two Bush Wars.
