The illiterate patriot

The Angry Patriot [Salon]

Standing near the border, whipped by the desert wind, Simcox tells me, "This is the Boston tea party! We are reestablishing the can-do attitude! We're tough and tenacious but humane and civilized. We are the American spirit. We say no, we mean no. The word is 'temerity' -- rock-solid character! We are challenging two governments. This is about will."

Temerity: [Dictionary.Com] Unreasonable or foolhardy contempt of danger; rashness.

"You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."
