Professor Gordon S. Wood & The Tea Party Originals
Wood's remarks reflect a perspective on the modern Tea Party movement much different than the "sameism" which we are subjected to on a daily basis from many of the the cookie-cutter academic historians; as well as those trying to impress them. I don't agree, necessarily, with everything Wood says in this interview, but his remarks are thought provoking and respectful of the Tea Party and their identification (albeit imperfect) with the Founders. Moreover, his remarks regarding one's "political agenda" are refreshingly honest. Listen here.
