Commentary By Frederick Meekins Telling It Like It Is To Those That Might Not Want To Hear It & Links To News Around The Internet

The cover of the 11/25/2013 issue of The Nation is titled “The Grand Old Tea Party: Why Today's Whack Birds Are Just Like Yesterday's Wingnuts”. Accompanying the title are caricatures of Ronald Reagan, Jesse Helms, Newt Gingrich, Joe McCarthy, and Barry Goldwater. Say what you want about these figures. But unlike the Occupy movement of the pages of this publication best suited to line the bottom of a bird cage, none of these men ever defecated on the side of a police cruiser.
