I was planning to write about this myself, but Sissy Willis at Sisu beat me to the punch, and said it better than I could ever hope to:

“The Royalist reaction.” That’s it! The Rahm-Emanuel-choreographed reaction of White House and media allies to the Tea Party phenomenon — like their earlier Alinskyesque jihad against Rush Limbaugh — is the modern-day equivalent of the reaction of American colonists loyal to Great Britain to the upstart Patriots: “Underestimation, mistrust and [an] attitude of superiority.”
