Yes, I think, since this belated review of Uncle Bill’s bio of Luther Martin was written by a priest. Shockingly fair and perceptive given the movement quarters in which it appears.

I don’t keep track of such things: have the Tea Partiers, or the more serious among them, rediscovered and/or consciously tied themselves to the Anti-Federalists? Of course, my question assumes that the movement is not wholly anti-intellectual; this assumption may be even more of a stretch than that Kauffman is appropriate Good Friday material.

Jeremy Beer is a philanthropic consultant. He lives with his wife, Kara, in the Willo neighborhood of her hometown: Phoenix, Arizona. Although he likes Arizona and the land west of the one hundredth meridian generally, Jeremy is from Kosciusko County, Indiana, and considers himself a Hoosier patriot. He believes that Booth Tarkington was one of our greatest novelists, that Jean Shepherd was one of our greatest humorists, that Billy Sunday was our one of our greatest (and speediest) orators, and that Larry Bird is without a doubt our greatest living American. Jeremy obtained his doctorate in psychology from the University of Texas at Austin. From 2000 to 2008 he worked at the Intercollegiate Studies Institute in Wilmington, Delaware, serving finally as vice president of publications and editor in chief of ISI Books. He serves on the boards of Front Porch Republic, Inc., Mars Hill Audio, and Catholic Phoenix. A more complete and much more professional bio can be found here.

  1. They’ve rediscovered nullification, or have begun to do so, which might be a half-step toward discovering the anti-federalists. I think Kauffman would find a receptive audience among the tea partiers, if only they know about him.

  2. Bill Kauffman is destined to lead the Tea Partiers at the barricades in Washington City. I, for one, am looking forward to the Utube footage!

  3. We may be a bit slow on the uptake, but some of us TEA Partiers are indeed finding Kauffman and Nullification and will certainly consider the anti-federalists.
