Matt Taibbi, den argaste liberalen i 50 delstater.
Finns det någon politisk journalist som skriver snärtigare — och ilsknare — än Matt Taibbi på Rolling Stone?
It’s not like the Tea Partiers hate black people. It’s just that they’re shockingly willing to believe the appalling horseshit fantasy about how white people in the age of Obama are some kind of oppressed minority. That may not be racism, but it is incredibly, earth-shatteringly stupid.
This is a party [alltså republikanerna – min anm.] that in 2008 was not just beaten but obliterated, with nearly every one of its recognizable leaders reduced to historical-footnote status and pinned with blame for some ghastly political catastrophe. There were literally no healthy bodies left on the bench, but the Republicans managed to get back in the game anyway by plucking an assortment of nativist freaks, village idiots and Internet Hitlers out of thin air and training them into a giant ball of incoherent resentment just in time for the 2010 midterms.
HÄR hittar ni hela Taibbis insiktsfulla och underhållande artikel om Tea Party från 2010 (när den amerikanska högerns ”Dingbat Revolution” faktiskt föreföll vara nära förestående).
