Well, it was bound to happen.
Not satisfied with making a mockery of the Democratic Party, a group of Leftists is now working toward infiltrating the Tea Party movement by showing up and fabricating the heretofore completely unsubstantiated fantasy that the entire movement is predicated on racism, homophobia, misogyny, bla bla bla.
Great things here are easy to find:
First of all, they’re finally admitting their caricature of the Tea Party movement is so ludicrous that they have to contrive its existence for their pawns in the media.
Secondly, as this story goes viral, it will finally put to rest the hallucinations of the likes of those who see spitting and hear racial epithets at the events.
We may be reaching critical mass for the Tea Party movement wherein its detractors are so discredited, the genuine and grass-roots nature of its origins can no longer be deined by the sheep of the old-school media. Ironically, by this flagrant and pathetic attempt, the Tea Party enemies will likely undermine their own efforts.

UPDATE (from Dan): Law Professor William A. Jacobson has a great short post on Jason Levin, the left-winger behind the attempt to crash the Tea Parties. So, my question for Mr. Levin is this: if you’re so convinced that the Tea Parties are “absolutely” full of “homophobes, racists or morons”, why then do you need to infiltrate the rallies to “to make its members appear to be racist, homophobic and moronic”?
(Maybe this update merits a post of its own.)
