Random Round-Up 04-28

It's a little round-up today because I'm tired and cranky.

Opponents of New Immigration Law Boycott Arizona Iced Tea ...too bad it's brewed in New York. Idiots

Why 'tea party' defenders won't let N-word claims rest. Black congressmen's charges that they faced 15 N-word slings from 'tea partyers' in the run-up to the health-care vote tarred the movement. Will tea party insistence that the lawmakers present evidence help US move to a 'post-shame' era?
A bright line was crossed on the 20th," says Christina Botteri, a spokeswoman for the Tea Party Federation. "The left constantly attacks conservatives as racist, as dumb, as evil, but what happened on the 20th is a sitting congressman, with the full voice and credibility of the House of Representatives, accused a group of citizens with whom he philosophically disagrees of assault and then refused to help find the persons responsible. They need to help us find the people responsible or apologize for making it up."

Conservative Web publisher Andrew Breitbart has accused the congressmen of lying about the incident in an effort to tar the tea party movement. He has gone so far as to offer a $100,000 donation to the United Negro College Fund for proof. Though it appears from footage that at least some of the congressmen's entourage were filming the walk, no one has claimed the bounty.

"[This] is a slander with real-world repercussions," Mr. Breitbart asserts on

Some in the mainstream press have conceded tea partyers may have a point. Washington Post reporter David Weigel has said the March 20 incident is a "paradigm shift" that shows conservatives how the media accept attacks on the right without doing due diligence. Politico's Ben Smith, who keeps a close eye on the tea party movement, Tweeted a response to Breitbart about the lack of takers on the bounty: "I think you've pretty much won this one, no?"
You can read the whole argument but it's really page two where the action happens.

Media still clueless about Tea Parties. One hates to quibble, since this is such an excellent article, however I believe the headline could be edited down even more to "Media still clueless".

Thank you Gawker for this! The Washington Post Cannot Tell Obama From Malcolm X Query: Which is worse, that the front page proof-reader is sloppy or that they can't see the difference between Obama and Malcolm X?
