…(no relation) on the vicious attempts by Democrats to smear Tea Partiers as ‘terrorists.’ Note that Charles Lane does not actually agree with the Tea Party, but manages to tell the difference between them and, say, people who try to murder civilians with nail bombs and rat poison; something that the Left seems to be having (deliberate) trouble with these days. However, there’s this howler:

Indeed. LaRouche Democrats were unwelcome interlopers in the Tea Party movement…
…which didn’t stop the media from equating them with the Right then, and apparently hasn’t stopped folks from being sloppy now.
But I quibble, I’m sure.
