    Priceless. I've always loved P.J. Don't always agree with his conclusions...but always loved his style and sense of fair play.

    lol

    awesome

    PJ has always been one of my favorite writers.

    Here is an article I saw today that I was going to post in its own thread but might as well post here, since it touches on the same things as the OP, not as funny though.



    The Truth About the Tea Party (the Original One)
    1. The Tea Party was not a protest against high taxes.
    2. The Tea Party was prompted by a corporate bailout.
    3. The Tea Party was a grass-roots movement -- with an element of AstroTurf.
    4. The Tea Party wasn't always a touchstone of American nationalism.
