    UPDATED: Why Does the South Florida Tea Party Agree With the New York Times?

    The latest PR splash for the South Florida Tea Party pairs the conservative activists with a strange bedfellow, the New York Times.  Even weirder, the much-ridiculed protest group appears to have chosen a worthy cause.  Tomorrow, the activists plan to protest Charlie Crist's $536 million ...
