Nate Silver looks at the polls and says the Tea Party is genuinely growing unpopular among most Americans. Obviously, I’m no fan of teatards and I think that the American public is right to look unfavorably at them. But also too I think this is happening because the media has branded the Tea Party as insufficiently serious.
We’re being set up to be told that Tim Pawlenty or Mitch Daniels is a serious Burkean intellectual unlike those idiots who wave the Don’t Tread On Me flag. I can feel it in my bones.
