David Weigel on why the Tea Party isn’t against the Libya intervention:
“The Tea Party is libertarian in plenty of ways. But if it has one defining characteristic, it’s that it’s nationalist. If there’s a way to remove Qaddafi decades after he aided the Lockerbie bombers, then that’s more important than a debate over the deep thoughts of the founders.”
That’s pretty much my take on the Tea Party’s reaction, as well.
