Dearth of a Nation
Chase Whiteside is back -- and at this point he should be wearing a cape or something. For those who haven't been following along, Whiteside is the whip-smart young journalist who's now twice exposed the tea baggers and Palinites (who, let's face it, are largely one and the same group) as the painfully uninformed yet astonishingly self-certain dipshits they pretty much are. He's done it through nothing more impressive than simply pointing a camera at them, asking a couple of very respectful and measured questions, then letting them hang themselves with their own ignorance.
It's always entertaining as hell to watch -- so it goes without saying that Whiteside's trip to the April 15th "Tax Day Tea Party" in D.C. is worth taking ten minutes out of your day to watch.
