Eugene Robinson, a columnist for The Washington Post, has written a critique of the anger on the Right, especially the virulent anti-Obama hysteria of the past year.
Robinson's finding won't surprise anyone, I suspect, but he makes a strong case that Obama's race is a motivating factor in the wingnuttery and hatred spewed by some on the Far Right.
The Tea Party's political rhetoric ("Let's take back our country!") is overheated and based on assumptions, Robinson writes, especially when compared to the facts. Yet the facts don't seem to matter to some political operators.
