Know Thy Enemy
Tea Party Hypocrisy
by Saab Lofton
"In the case of Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, he's planning to hold back $614 million in 'performance bonuses' from the plane's lead contractor Lockheed Martin. (And you thought only bankers and financial wheeler-dealers got performance bonuses!) But it's striking that there are no tea party movements out in the streets of America demanding our money back or claiming that we're going to be broken by this."
--Tom Engelhardt, a Yale AND Harvard graduate, March 19th, 2010
