In an e-mail to supporters yesterday (and on his Tumblr), filter-deficient Florida congressman Alan Grayson, as is his wont, suggested that the t in tea party stands for a burning cross. As to his assertion that the tea party is actually "no more popular than the Klan," 26 percent of Americans support the tea party according to a new Washington Post/ABC News poll, and we couldn't find any polls measuring support for the KKK but ... it's probably lower than that.

Grayson does not offer a source for the claim in his e-mail. Instead, it was hyperlinked to a campaign-donations page.
