Kim's otherwise excellent article made one rather bizarre inclusion in his list of the usual suspects: "the tea party is an uneasy conclave of Ayn Rand secular libertarians and fundamentalist Christian evangelicals; it contains birthers, Birchers, racists, xenophobes, Ron Paulites, cold warriors, Zionists, constitutionalists, vanilla Republicans looking for a high and militia-style survivalists."

Why Zionists? Why should those who advocate the national liberation movement of the Jewish people be included among such a grim group of extremist right-wing fellow travelers?

We Nation-reading Zionists expect Kim to be correct, not politically correct.
