The creators of that petition to arrest John Boehner, Eric Cantor and other influential Republicans are going to feel silly when they realize what an opportunity they missed. Red Alert Politics notes that actor Chris Noth of “The Good Wife” and “Sex and the City” has called for Tea Party members to be not arrested but horsewhipped.

That’s pretty harsh, but Noth says they deserve it. Why? For being racists, of course.

Ah, that’s what it was all about.

Well, Noth certainly isn’t going to tolerate your racism, which you display by not rubber stamping the president’s agenda.

Nick Searcy, Twitchy’s authority on all things Hollywood, felt justified in taking on Noth’s accusation.
