I am not a terribly big fan of Chris Matthews, but I recently found this good collection of the entire series and have been watching it today.
This clip (number 5 in the series) does a pretty good job of connecting these Tea Party idiots (sorry, but true) to the John Birchers and McCarthy.
And some good good clips of how just horrible people like Glen Beck and other Republicans are in presenting information that is clearly false. Add Sarah Palin to this. Every time I hear her talk about her Christian faith, btw, I throw up in my mouth. This is someone who cheered on the racists during the 08 campaign, and this piece reminded me how horribly dishonest she was about healthcare.
