Tea Party roundup

Quite a day for Tea Party links:

— further proof of what we all understood anyway: the Tea Party is, in fact, the extremist wing of the GOP, and not some entirely new paradigm in politics.

— they’re also old, white and often on Medicare (contrary to the portrait the New York TImes once tried to paint).

— related in Village Voice: White America Has Lost Its Mind.

— and of course the rising young star of conservatism is at it again.

(This week’s TMW is also not thematically unrelated.)

… adding: even more crazy.

You might, ahem, call it Too Much Crazy.
