In what may be the ultimate irony, a story in the CSMonitor points out that Saul Alinsky and his tactics have been adopted by the Tea Party and Newt Gingrich

Quote:
FreedomWorks, the tea party group headed by former Republican House leader Dick Armey, gives copies of “Rules for Radicals” to its leaders. “His tactics when it comes to grass-roots organizing are incredibly effective,” FreedomWorks spokesman Adam Brandon told The Wall Street Journal. Tea partyers aggressively confronting lawmakers at town hall meetings is straight from Alinsky’s playbook.


Is it a good thing that Conservatives have railed against electing a follower of Alinsky? Or is the cognitive dissonence drowning out nothing?

@parados,
That's rather poetic.
