I just got my January 2010 issue of Gentlemen’s Quarterly, a magazine I do not pay for, but for some reason receive. There is a big, splashy article on the tea party movement. About four months late, the meme is . . .
wait for it . . .
the tea partiers are racists.
The inferential power on display is an awesome thing to behold.
Let’s just go through this one more time.
Would there be such a thing as the tea party movement, led by conservatives, if an African-American man with the public policy views of, say, Thomas Sowell were in the White House?
Then, shut up.
(And I almost feel bad for saying that because I tell my kids all the time they should never say it, but this is just a completely righteous exception.)
