Santelli's Spontaneous Outburst Not So Much

Remember last week when that guy Rick Santelli went nuts on CNBC in an apparently genuine Howard Beale moment? The guy was so incensed by Obama's lack of financial discipline that he called for a Chicago Tea Party where they would throw, I don't know, tea in the water? Anyway, it seems to have caught fire, and people everywhere are calling: "Tea party! tea party!". Nope. It was all fake, manufactured by rich Republicans at enormous cost. The story was originally in Playboy. I can't remember them breaking a story in the last decade or two. Go Playboy!
