The Faces of the Teabaggers

AmericaBlog aims us to a mind-boggling video interview with people at the protest in Washington, DC this past weekend. It's almost ten minutes, but I guarantee you've never seen or heard any compendium of the mindset of these folks like this. The interviewer shows his subjects great respect and lets them speak their minds... and, boy, do they.

ETA: A thing -- the interviewer tells a number of people that the first "czar" in American government was appointed by Reagan. That is not correct: Nixon appointed the first "drug czar", Jerome Jaffe. Some people make the case that you can take it all the way back to FDR.
