Kimberley Strassel over at the Wall Street Journal has some good advice for the “progressive tea party” “resistance” “movement”:  don’t go down the path you’re on because it’s based on a fundamentally flawed understanding of the Tea Party.

The “art” was taken down by Representative Duncan Hunter (R-CA), then rehung by Representative Lacy Clay (D-MO), taken down yet again

The Congressional Black Caucus is facing an existential quandary: to allow a Dominican-American to join or not to allow it?  Is a Dominican-American black?  Hispanic?  Afro-Latino?  Who decides?  And what if that person tried to unseat Charlie Rangel (twice)?
