Is Sen. Mike Lee an old-school political insider or a cutting-edge revolutionary?
This weekend Philip Rucker at the Washington Post explored the apparent conundrum presented by Lee simultaneously being both a consummate insider (he is the son of Ronald Reagan's solicitor general; a former Supreme Court clerk; second cousin of two other U.S. Senators; and a close family friend of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev.) and someone who rose to power on the wave of the anti-establishment tea party movement.
There a lot of super interesting aspects to this piece we could go on and on about — it's journalism at its very best, folks — but you're probably best served just reading the actual article than hearing any more about it secondhand.
One thing we can definitively say, though: Rucker's Washington Post piece is only the second-best article profiling Lee. Click here to see the best.
