Here’s an interesting choice of analogy from Matt Mackowiak’s op-edin The Austin American-Statesman, promoting the Tea Parties.
The coming revolution is akin to “Fight Club,” the 1999 film that follows the struggles of day to day life for a regular guy who starts an underground fight club as radical and not terribly productive psychotherapy.

Project Mayhem, of course, was the militarization of the Fight Clubs into terrorist cells that blow up banks. But Mackowiak wants us to think of the new Project Mayhem as the 2010 elections, so I guess that’s okay. It’s not like he…
Mackowiak is a Republican political and communications consultant and former Press Secretary to U.S. Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison, R-Texas.
