This clip compares the Tea Party to the American Taliban.
It is a very witty commentary on our current political system, one that deserves proper attention.

-ideological purity
-compromise as weakness
-a fundamentalist belief in scriptural literalism
-denying science
-unmoved by facts
-undeterred by new information
-a hostile fear of progress
-a demonization of education
-a need to control women's bodies
-severe xenophobia
-tribal mentality
-intolerance of dissent
-a pathological hatred of the U.S. government
They can call themselves the Tea Party/Conservatives/Republican­s ... But we should call them what they are. The American Taliban.
