Um, "Teabagging" Wingnuts: This Is a Family Show, right? RIGHT?

Apart from the weird psycho-craziness of the participants in so-called "teabagging" protests, presumably, irrationally, against President Obama's rollback of tax rates to those of the 90s Clinton years; apart from the usual regurgitation of ethnocentric paranoia and conspiracy gone wild -- President Obama wasn't born in the U.S., he's a socialist, he's a Muslim, he's a terrorist, etc. etc. -- the most perversely hilarious thing about these book-burning fanatics ("let's burn all the books about evolution," screams a madwoman), these so-called "TEA-BAGGERS" whose idiotic protests are based on the ignorant misinterpretation of their own history regarding the Boston Tea Party ... IS

THEY HAVE NO IDEA WHAT "TEABAGGING" ACTUALLY MEANS! Hahahaha!!!


A Little background from Paul Krugman:

"One way to get a good sense of the current state of the G.O.P., and also to see how little has really changed, is to look at the “tea parties” that have been held in a number of places already, and will be held across the country on Wednesday. These parties — antitaxation demonstrations that are supposed to evoke the memory of the Boston Tea Party and the American Revolution — have been the subject of considerable mockery, and rightly so. But everything that critics mock about these parties has long been standard practice within the Republican Party.

it turns out that the tea parties don’t represent a spontaneous outpouring of public sentiment. They’re AstroTurf (fake grass roots) events, manufactured by the usual suspects. In particular, a key role is being played by FreedomWorks, an organization run by Richard Armey, the former House majority leader, and supported by the usual group of right-wing billionaires. And the parties are, of course, being promoted heavily by Fox News."

Morons.

I never thought I'd see the day when the Republican party would stoop to corporate supported teabaggings passed off as "grass roots" events just to attract attention to issues that they don't understand.

I'm hearing suggestions that the next "grass roots" efforts from the repubes could be a push to stop eco-friendly responses to acid rain and climate change. Pseudo activists can join "Golden Shower" events.

Those interested in illegal immigration issues should join the "Dirty Sanchez" rallies.

And of course the conservatives who want to fight back against the vegetarian push can become "Salad Tossers".
