The Best Description Of The Tea Party I’ve Ever Read…   1 comment

is this one, over on Booman Tribune, in the comments section of this article here:

Nevertheless, the southern enemy of progress isn’t poor white people anyway, any more than it is poor black ones, even if poor whites may seem too willing to blame their troubles on “the blacks” and “the gays”. They are surely less likely to vote Republican than not to vote at all.

I’m pretty sure most of your Tea Party activists, though, the ones with the leisure to travel cross-country in their three-cornered hats and Medicare scooters, aren’t actually poor or anywhere near it; they’re well-off and mean-spirited retired petit-bourgeois–with a contingent of frat-house bullies and mean girls representing their entitled children–and they are kind of morons of spite, with a deficiency of understanding that goes along with their deficiency of feeling. I don’t normally use the word “moron” but these are people who actively wish harm to others and they should be loudly mocked. As should Perot. Liberals are not the lesser of two evils, more like the most hopeful of the not-good-enoughs, which is pretty much the best we miserable humans can do.

note: bolded section is the description in question.
