An interesting discovery by our friend Zombie:
Yesterday I attended the Oakland Museum’s White Elephant Sale, a massive annual event where thousands of people crowd into an enormous warehouse to browse through mountains of junk, castoffs and collectibles.
I was rooting through a box of old books when I noticed a yellowed scrap of paper loose at the bottom of the box. Curious, I picked it up and was at first mystified and then amazed at what was printed on it.
I brought the scrap along with my other purchases to the check-out table, but they just let me have it for free. Which was a mistake on their part, because what I had discovered was a foundational document of the Tea Party movement — dating all the way back to 1963!
I have since dubbed this sacred artifact the Codex Teapartiensis.
I brought it home and scanned it, to share my discovery with other history scholars.
