[UPDATE]: Welcome, Instapundit readers.
So, The New Republic wants to post an article on the oh-so-beleaguered moderates in the Tea Party movement (translation: they’re trying to foment a schism in said movement, because otherwise next January they’re going to abruptly have a shortage of politicians who care about what The New Republic thinks about everything). Via Ann Althouse (H/T: Instapundit) comes the first picture that they associated with the article: a man putting two teabags in his mouth.
…and via me comes the second picture that they associated with said article: a pitchfork being used as a sign.
Yes. They went from ‘sex’ to ‘violence,’ but the message remains the same to The New Republic‘s readers: these people in the Tea Party are the Other. Embrace the Democrat. Which is their privilege, but they shouldn’t pretend to be some sort of objective observer of the whole thing when what they actually want to do is protect the interests of the Democratic party.
PS: Also, The New Republic should grow the heck up.
