Lords of the flies

Why, on these two days that commemorate Waco and the Oklahoma City bombing and Columbine and Hitler’s birthday (the first and last two pairs not coincidental, apparently), are gun rallies and the tea partiers all we’re hearing about? When the polls can’t even get it straight how many of the crazy Americans in this crazy country the crazy tea party represents? (Estimates range from 13%, from Quinnipiac; to 18%, from NYT/CBS; to a whopping 28% from Gallup.)

This is nuts. Here’s what I think we should do. They hate government; they don’t want government interfering in their self-regulating lives? Send them all off to an island somewhere, preferably with lots of flies.
