I'd love for someone to argue against this as perfectly describing the modern leftist progressive movement all the while pointing their boney, frail fingers at tea party types as doing the same, which is 100% the opposite of what the Tea party mentality is. Read it and tell me how my opinion and Tom Nichols opinion of the evil, twisted left is wrong. I double dare you.

Tom Nichols is a professor at the U.S. Naval War College and at the Harvard Extension School. He has written widely, including five books, on international relations, Russian affairs, and nuclear weapons. In addition to his academic posts, he has been a fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, the Carnegie Council on Ethics and International Relations, and the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. In Washington, he served as personal staff for defense and security affairs in the United States Senate to the late Senator John Heinz of Pennsylvania. He is also a five-time undefeated Jeopardy! champion. The views expressed here are his own. Also, he has an awesome cat named Carla.
