Overnight Open Thread

Okay I'm going to be out most of the day and evening and I've got a ton of videos built up so that all equals Video Sunday.

The Mystery of the Racist 'Tea Party' Comics

A long running narrative on the left has been that the Tea Party is filled with racists. It just has to be true despite the lack of any evidence of this. So recently lefty blogs have been a flutter over recently found racist 'Tea Party' comics. Supposedly they were discovered by comic book blogger Ethan Persoff who bought a few copies somewhere in Corpus Christi, TX and put scans up on his website. As you can see below they're done in black an white and mock Obama using recreations of famous comic book covers. But so far the only link to the Tea Party movement is just the title, 'Tea Party Comix' - Tea Party leaders disavow any knowledge of them and no one seems to know who the author was or if they were widely distributed.

Having looked through them it's clear that whoever did them was quite familiar with well known vintage comic book covers and their drawing is fairly good. But my impression is that the overall tone is slightly off - it reads more like an outsider's view of how Tea Partiers are supposed to think rather than their actual viewpoints and it has the look and feel of something from an alternative weekly rather than a Tea Party handout. Plus there's a decided lack of humor and cleverness. So barring further evidence I see this as being most likely a plant by an anti-tea Party leftist. But with just enough over the top irony that if caught, they can claim that they were really just spoofing Tea Partiers.
