Things That Make You Go, “Hmmm”

OVER T’ PJ’S an essay asserting that, far from fighting with the “Hippies,” we in the Right should acknowledge and welcome them as our forebears.

Actually, considering that the Tea Party demographic skews toward people in their 50s and 60s, it may very well be that many Tea Partiers did wear long hair and practice free love 40 years ago when they were young. In other words, a certain percentage of Tea Partiers aren’t simply like the original hippies — they were the original hippies, but in the intervening decades have grown less ostentatious and these days express their anti-authoritarian urges in a more culturally conventional manner, now that adolescence has worn off.

I’d own that.
