Patriot's Day 2010

So, I finally ran across an something that said that this
is the flag of "American Revolution II", i.e., the Tea Party Movement, etc.


Like last year, Patriot's Day--the real, the original Patriot's Day--finds us in the middle of all sorts of argy-bargy regarding the Tea Party Movement, it's goals and values, and the sort of people it attracts.  Up until a week or so ago we were all a bunch of ignernt homophobic racist wife-beating rednecks; now we're a bunch of upper-middle class intellectual elitists.

Whatever.  The Lame Stream Media will continue to Not Get It.

In the meantime, allow me to honor our Founding Fathers by referring you to last year's Patriots Day post, as well as the two I made (Patriot's Day and April Morning*) the year before that.

"April Morning", by the way, is a reference to a novelette that Howard Fast wrote about the events of April 19, 1775.  It was made into a television movie starring Robert Urich which was (IMHO) one of those better-than-the-book rarities.
