Strong Tea

My new hero. Sinfonian went to a tea party today. Somehow they made the mistake of giving him the microphone and he KO'ed the crowd. He set them up so perfectly. Just awesome.

Meanwhile, there's a whole new set of links at Memorandum. Everybody's got something to say about teabagging. I wouldn't bother to read Ambinder. He's even more lame than usual. He gravely tells Congress that they must now pay attention to the Teabag Rebellion because they maybe managed to drum up 100,000 deluded wingnuts in total across the whole country. That's some weak tea. As somebody pointed out, more people than that started spontaneously dancing in the streets of Manhattan when Obama won the election.

Update: I did my last post on this at DetNews. Most generous estimate of attendance is 250,000 total. Still less than the NYC anti-war rally.

An antidote for Tea Bag smokers:

Remember 9/11!

Meaning: $9 trillion dollars of public debt was accumulated under Republican administrations. Total public debt stands at $11 trillion. Thus, 82% of our debt is Republican debt.

To any tea baggers out there reading this, stick 9/11 in your pipe and smoke it.

One more thing, Libby, I intend to make a 9/11 Debt logo tomorrow for free distribution. I hope it goes viral to counteract this idiocy. I'll let you know when it is ready.

I think that figure sums up the number of Faux news followers. Good to make sure their advertizers see it ... oh, sorry, I forgot their funding is from RNC Inc.

That is a problem when trying to hit them in the wallet Ruth.
