Quote of the Day
If I have contempt for these [Tea Partiers'] non-arguments, it is because I retain some smidgen of a belief in honest politics and small government. These people are thoroughgoing frauds - a bunch of right-wing victim-mongers whining about something they have no actual ideas about confronting. They are not something new. They are the decaying stench of the Republican corpse. If they get into power somehow, it will be Weekend At Bernie's for conservatism. Andrew Sullivan, on the epistemic closure of the Tea Party movement. Lucky for all of us, the Republicans' "enthusiasm advantage" over the Democratic Party has dropped to its lowest point since the movement's founding.
