A reader reports in from the Conradian heart of crazy …
Joe Wilson’s not the only one bringing the crazy to DC. The town’s been invaded by teabaggers.
Was having a drink with a friend at a fancy downtown bar when two well-dressed men start chatting with us. Seemed friendly and normal enough until one asks how big we think the march tomorrow will be — “250,000? They say all the hotels are full!” I ask, “Are you here for that?” — and get an earful about how Medicare has a $35 trillion unfunded liability, every letter you mail costs $1 is taxes, and Obama is a Manchurian candidate who wants to create a million-person national civil defense force with a budget equal to the Penatagon’s.
Tomorrow should be fun.
