One thing that struck me from the beginning about the tea party rhetoric is the idea of reclaiming something that has been taken away.
At a recent campaign rally in Paducah, Ky., Senate candidate Rand Paul, a darling of the tea party movement, drew thunderous applause when he said that if Republicans win, "we get to go to Washington and take back our government."
Take it back from whom? Maybe he thinks it goes without saying, because he didn't say.
On Sunday, in a last-minute fundraising appeal, Republican presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee implored his supporters to help "return American government to the American people."
Again, who's in possession of the government right now, if not the American people? The non-American people? The un-American people?
I ask myself what's so different about Obama, and the answer is pretty obvious: He's black.
Uh huh. Perhaps Robinson can explain the following then? (Courtesy of The Corner)
