TWI’s David Weigel appeared on Countdown with Keith Olbermann last night and demonstrated that his encyclopedic knowledge of the nation’s right wing is exceeded only by his knowledge of comic book history. Weigel and Olbermann discussed a recent Captain America comic that featured crowds of protesters holding signs that looked remarkably similar to those captured by Weigel’s camera at a Tea Party rally last year.

If you know your US history AND your comic book history, you'd know that Captain America has been battling rightwing fascists since before the US entered WW2

I understand that with the tea they'll be serving KY Jelly on toast, just to set the mood.
