For John, BLUF: Blame the Tea Parties. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From the web presence, The Hill, we have this article by Mr Jim Treacher, with the headline:
TPM’s Josh Marshall: Hey, What’s Russian For ‘Tea Party’?The bottom line of the article:
Everything bad that happens in the world can be traced back to you, teahadists. And the more you deny it, the truer it gets.There you have it. The Tea Parties are the sum of all evil. The Caliphate (née ISIL) is OK, but Tea Parties are not. Not even for little girls on a summer afternoon.
Hat tip to the Instapundit.
