Pundits Be Damned

Nominally conservative commentators
have been busily trashing the TEA party movement, the most dynamic and exciting thing to happen to American politics in more than a century. Of course, any member of the Punditocracy is a member of the Establishment Elite, and must remain cognizant of what the E.E. expects of him: that the defense of the E.E.'s supremacy overrides all other considerations. All the same, to lay waste to such magnetic figures as Glenn Beck, Sarah Heath Palin, and Michele Bachmann, and to deride the persons who admire them as simpletons who lack understanding of the "nuances" of politics and governance, is destructive to GOP fortunes. If preserving the perquisites of its fatcat kingmakers trumps all prospect of breaking Democrat hegemony and turning Washington back in a conservative direction, then the Republican Party truly has obsoleted itself. -- Francis W.
