Tea Party teaches constitution



You've perhaps read of the religion- and Tea Party-based takeover of most of the levers of government in Hot Springs and Garland County. How extreme are they? Pretty extreme.

They've already had David Barton, the religionist Republican masquerading as a historian, in to instruct local politicians on running government by the Bible.

The Garland County Tea Party is also holding classes on the Constitution. (Thursday night classes are at the First Church of the Nazarene, pastored by the new Hot Springs mayor's husband.) And what is the text for this "class" on the Constitution?

Glenn Beck's favorite book, "The 5,000 Year Leap," by the late Mormon crackpot, Cleon Skousen. Skousen thought Dwight Eisenhower was a Communist. Be afraid. Be very afraid.
