Those hilariously odd Tea Party folks keep fooling the press and public—some of the time. The latest victim: A reporter at the Washington Post who should know better.

Nope. In fact, he's a proud racist, so hateful that even the Tea Party folks are trying to distance themselves from the man.
The Post played along, unwilling or unable to sort out the truth. Read about it here.
