Saul Alinsky is loved by the Tea Party

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

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?

That's rather poetic.
