While reading yet another painfully predictable Tea Party story at the Washington Post, it occurred to me that if the Post had been around at the founding, they would have portrayed the founding fathers as a bunch of “angry” misfits.
They would have castigated John Adams the same way they castigate Sarah Palin. They would have sneered at George Washington. They would have sneered at the revolutionary movement.
And they would have sneered at the colonies, as they sailed back to the high society of London.
