Patriots and Pinheads

Lots of buzz about the freshman Tea Party reps who voted against reauthorizing the Patriot Act. I wouldn't get too excited about these guys "libertarian" bona fides. Since all the polls show that the actual TPs have no such high-minded instincts (they're just uber-wingers who hate abortion, gays, and Obama, but love torture, imperialism, and Glenn Beck), there's a simpler explanation: this is just another knee jerk anti-Obama vote. They think he's using the census to stock his concentration camps, after all. I'll believe these clowns care about civil liberties when they vote to limit the power of a GOP president. Once Sarah Palin comes calling, asking for power to grill a few Muslims on the White House lawn, this crowd will smile, salute, and pass the slaw.
