Say hey! When you want incompetence, poor reasoning and faulty logic on a large but still kind of small scale, where do you turn? Not Dick Cheney, silly! That’s incompetence, poor reasoning and faulty logic on an impossibly large scale. No, you should turn to those genuine Fat American patriots, the teabaggers!
Pardon. “Tea Party Patriots.” Remember, that’s what they wish to be called because they realized too late in the game that being teabagged means having balls in your face. And again, we know you, dear reader, know such things. We just wanted to beat a dead horse. Because it’s fun to make fun of these idiots!
Anyspray, the retards good people who plan these teabag parties are at it again. Check out this story from CNN’s Political Ticker:
Some Tea Party activists from across the country are planning a ‘national strike’ on January 20, the one-year anniversary of President Barack Obama’s inauguration.
The idea of holding an economic protest sprung up during the holidays as the result of a conference call held by various Tea Party group leaders, according to Allen Hardage, a conservative grassroots organizer from Georgia.
“Tea Party activists are frustrated that despite a huge turnout over the last year Congress is ignoring them,” says Hardage, who is national operations director for the planned strike. “The question is that if the elected officials ignore you, what do you do to exercises [sic] your right to self-governance? So we decided to hold a National Day of Strike where we go after the large donors of the people pushing this radical agenda.”
Ugh. “Radical agenda.” Which agenda is that? Sending more military personnel to Afghanistan? Not radical. Stimulus spending, which respected and Pulitzer Prize-winning economists think wasn’t enough to begin with? Not radical. Extending health insurance to children? Not radical! And that’s just three items! Let’s look further at Mr. Hardage’s ideas polemics.
Hardage says the idea of the one-day strike is to focus attention on the businesses that support the most liberal members of Congress as well as groups that advocate “big government” policies.
But Hardage says the move will not be a boycott: “Here we are exposing the agenda of some of the most widely known companies in America and letting the consumer decide. If a corporation decides to jump into politics to the tune of millions of dollars, then they need to expect that they will alienate some of their customers.”
Ah, the old big government argument. Let’s go back, say, one administration and ask: Who grew the government more than any President in history? If you said Republican and Conservative George W. Bush, you win nothin’! Cuz fancy learnin’ is for nerds, you fag! In these balls-in-facers defense, studying and reasoning are not high on the their list.
See, these are likely the same people who think one day without buying gasoline will send a message to petroleum companies. And not surprisingly, teabaggers don’t fare well in economics (see: anything they’ve said on record about the stimulus package, supply side economics or Bush’s tax cuts).
Mr. Hardage, if you’re big on exposing things, expose Wal-Mart’s crappy practice of putting local business owners out of business. We know that’s your favorite store, where you get all your expletive-free CDs, but give it a shot. And maybe while you’re at it, expose yourself in public, get arrested and get out of the public consciousness.
Now that we’ve spent nearly 600 words on what a knucklehead this guy is (you should question our sanity while you’re at it), here’s the best part of CNN’s story:
CNN reached out to a number of national Tea Party organizations. While some were aware of the planned strike and some not informed, none said they were going to actively take part in the event.
Ha! Protest FAIL. They’re going to stay home and teabag.
