This Week's Sneak Peek
That's right, boys and girls, it's another unflattering picture of a Teabagger.
Teabaggers have responded to these cartoons by saying that they're not all angry white guys dolled up in colonial drag, to which my response is: suck it up and get used to it. TV cameras and cartoonists are attracted to the outlandish and extreme elements of any group, which is why images of Gay Pride focus more on drag queens and leather fetishists than on casually dressed revelers -- and there's no point in complaining about it.
It's why Sarah Palin is more emblematic of the Tea Party than Dick Armey, in spite of his new dye job.
And its why Mr. Grouchy Imitation Patriot gets to be the image of your grouchy imitation patriotic movement.
