"Organized, by what The New York Times calls 'a loose-knit coalition of conservative activists led by former Attorney General Edwin Meese III,' the backers of the government shut-down are ensconced in organizations like Tea Party Patriots, Americans for Prosperity, Freedom Works, Club for Growth, Generation Opportunity, and Young Americans for Liberty, their names as fake as those of Communist front organizations in the 1930s and 1940s and as venal as their forerunners."
