The Tea Partiers Know Nothing

Deep thought: Perhaps the Tea Baggers (when exactly was it that we all agreed to give them intellectual and historical credibility by calling them "Tea Partiers") should change their name to the "Know Nothing Party". It works perfectly. Just like the Tea Baggers, the Know Nothings of the second/third party system were xenophobic, abhorred the naturalization of immigrants, were mostly middle class white protestants, and, like the tea partiers today, knew absolutely nothing.
