The Tea Party and the Neo-Confederacy

Check out Frank Rich's op-ed column in today's New York Times.

This was the money quote for me: "It’s not happenstance that officials from the Sons of Confederate Veterans in Virginia and Mississippi have argued, as one said this month, that the Confederate Army had been “fighting for the same things that people in the Tea Party are fighting for.”

We may have known this intuitively, but many times it takes Frank Rich to actually say it out loud.
