We know the majority of Tea Party supporters are sincere, principled people of good will.
Okay, whatever, it's after that they get to the actual evidence.
As the "outrage" over pointing out the obvious ensues, let us look at how prominent members of the movement "doth" prove the evidence wrong -- outside of Carl Paladino's forwarded email of course:
How about Texas GOP candidate for the 30th District, Steven Broden?
“We have a constitutional remedy. And the framers say if that don’t work, revolution.” “The option is on the table. I don’t think that we should remove anything from the table as it relates to our liberties and our freedoms. However, it is not the first option.”
Golly that's nice. Might be second option though.
Or maybe it is this guy?
The Republican candidate for state Senate in the 52nd District said Wednesday night that black men "find it more lucrative to be able to do drugs or other avenues rather than do education."
I imagine this gentlemen would find out more about black men, but when he sees them all garbed and black it makes him worried and nervous so he's never actually met one.
There are so few extremists and bigots associated with the Tea Party movement. Not this guy? Or this guy? Or this guy? Or even these guys and these guys ?
No, in David Broder's daily fantasy, they are all just people who will have to act like veterans. Veterans of either the Confederacy or the Einsatzgruppen, but veterans nonetheless.
