A brilliant comment about those intrepid teabaggers...
From John Cole at Balloon Juice...
You know what really irritates me about the tea parties? The basic fact that if right now, it were President John McCain and not President Obama, and nothing else had changed, these tea parties wouldn’t exist. You know it, I know it, and even the teabaggers know it. It is just such transparent bullshit that it is offensive. The most these guys ever did during the last lost eight years was put a limp Porkbusters logo on their website, but now that we have President Malcom X George McGovern Shabazz, they are freaking out like there is no tomorrow. So absurd.Spot on.
While we're here, where were these fuckers for the last eight years when George W. Bush was pissing away the budget surplus that Bill Clinton handed him?
UPDATE: If these teabaggers do indeed represent a "silent majority" as they claim, why did so many of them decide not to do their civic duty and vote five months ago?
