    I think Janeane Garofalo and Keith Olbermann are the reigning champions of crazy.

    I guess you've never heard of Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, Tucker Carlson, Neil Boortz, Michael Savage. or that guy on "Mad Money."

    (Ann Coulter doesn't count because her entire professed political ideology is an act to sell books.)

    No, that completely misses the point. He's not saying that people can't protest--that's fine and good--just that it's ridiculous to evoke the Boston Tea Party as if the two are conceptually related at all.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    The two ARE conceptually related, not as much through the one issue of taxation without representation, but the other issues that abounded the era of the American Revolution. I'll leave it to your ability to connect (or not) the dots.

    Don't bother interacting with blaise. He's just a mouthpiece. If you're catching flak from ajblaise, you must be over the target.
