havin’ a party

I’ll say one thing for the Tea Party – it’s bringing out the best in critics.

Andrew Sullivan at The Atlantic has a good set of posts on the nature of the Tea Party.  Here’s the link to part one: Trying To Understand The Tea Party; it folds in two other pieces on the TP, one from the New York Times and one from the New York Review of Books.

(Part 2 of Sullivan, in particular, is devastatingly on point.)

My guess is the Tea Party will shake apart from its internal contradictions – I feel like I should throw in a ‘comrades’ here – but who knows?
