Re: “Bleeding heart dreamland gets a mouth full of tea bags

My question wasn't so much pointed at the political motivation for the post, but the utter disregard for grammar, sentence structure, and punctuation in a widely-read publication. I actually did originally think that it might be a parody or something since it is ostensibly criticizing "educated" people while making some fairly glaring errors. Appropriately, that point leads me to my main criticism of the Tea Party, which is its black-and-white evaluation of our country's problems and its attempt to villainize the "educated" and intellectuals as the enemy. arty's bullet points and the response by PaulW illustrate this point well: our country's problems are much more complex than they were 100, 50, even 25 years ago. I think a Tea Party would have been a pretty appropriate response at that time. Today we are dealing with a financial crisis whose true blame lies in terms like credit default swaps and mortgage backed securities: things that 9 out of 10 Americans can't even define, much less analyze in the context of the Wall Street crisis.
