"The Tea Party’s rhetoric of defending the little guy against the powerful has always seemed discordant to the left, which regards such class consciousness as its own domain. The left has long identified itself with the idea of two classes in society -- the common people and the power elite -- each with its own, usually conflicting, interests. When left-wingers speak this way, conservatives like Limbaugh accuse them of 'class warfare.' But neither side grasps the full picture: in fact, it was the classical liberal tradition that first employed the class analysis that has survived to this day in altered forms." (08/30/11)
