As often happens, the most fiendish liberal columnists spent most of their careers as “objective” reporters, and when that weakly attached lid of restraint is finally lifted, the real leftist comes out screaming and ranting. Witness Timothy Egan at The New York Times, whose latest column is less-than-creatively titled "Wrong Side of History." Egan called Tea Party Republicans “America’s Worst Idea” and somehow conflated conservatives to anti-Catholic “Know Nothings.” What if you’re a Tea Party Catholic? Their “only real fight is with progress.”
