Jenny Beth Martin and Mark Meckler, co-founders of the Tea Party Patriots, have written a truly remarkable piece for Politico, a publication that continues to prove it's never sniffed a piece of garbage it didn't want to publish. Martin and Meckler (I loved their Vaudeville act!) are fed up with tea partiers being called racists—especially when liberals and the NAACP are the real racists!

Also: Barack Obama hung out with terrorists! TRUE FACT!

And then there's this stunner:
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. would be proud of this movement. He dreamed of a colorblind society. The tea party is a truly post-racial movement.

Racism, they claim, exists only on the fringe of the Tea Party movement. Sure it does. The Tea Party movement just has more fringe than the costume department for a community theater production of Hair.
