Tea parties and pretending grass

As Paul Kruman notes todayl the tea party thing, though promoted daily by Fox and others as a ‘grass roots movement’, is really something quite other, organized and funded by the usual suspects.

Some folks last week had done the requisite digging and reporting on this but Krugman’s piece is the first instance I’ve seen in the national press. So I thought I ought to pass it on to those of you who don’t get a chance to read as much as myself and others do.
